A former disc jockey of a local FM radio station in the Diocese of Kalibo has turned to video blogging, or vlogging, to teach young people about the Church.
Leonor Rosales said she decided to vlog to attract young people to the Church. Her channel, SPI-Talk or Spiritual Talk, has already more than 400 views since she started two weeks ago.
“I feel sad that young people seem not interested anymore in catechism,” she said. “As a Catholic, we should know our basics and we should not be strangers to our faith,” added Rosales.
On May 2, Rosales started giving out copies of the Bible and religious books to listeners as part of her campaign to promote the Catholic faith.
“Are there young people nowadays who are still interested in reading the Bible?” she asked.
Bishop Jose Corazon Tala-oc of Kalibo has encouraged the faithful to spend their time online learning about the Church and their faith.
“For senior citizens and young people, they are encouraged to listen to our Mass via streaming,” said the bishop.
Under the “general community quarantine,” people with ages 60 years old and above and those 20 years and below are prohibited from going out of their homes.
