Former bishop of Baguio dead at 80

MANILA  (UCAN): Bishop Carlito Cenzon, the former bishop of the northern Philippine city of Baguio, died at the age of 80 in a Manila hospital on June 26.
 
The late bishop is most remembered for fighting to protect a forest reservation near the city from an illegal road project allegedly spearheaded by a former government official.
Today, Mount Santo Tomas is covered by a permanent environmental protection order following the bishop’s 2014 petition for a Writ of Nature.
