Laiko appeals for offerings, contributions to churches

The Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas, or Laiko, appealed for contributions to churches amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We know that all the services and duties of our parishes and dioceses require our continued contributions,” said Rouquela Ponte, Laiko president.

“We have witnessed that even without the regular collections, the Church has been at the forefront of helping those in need, Catholics or non-Catholics,” she added.

Ponte noted that as a result of the lockdown Masses and other religious celebrations were not held.

“As a result, collections and various offerings to our churches have also stopped,” she said.

She called on lay organizations “to help promote parish programs for those in need during this pandemic.”

Ponte also asked for the permission of bishops and priests “to announce or post” her message on various platforms to reach the Catholic faithful.

“Let us remind [the faithful] to make regular offerings and contributions,” she said.

“Assign lay people to instruct and remind parishioners on how to send money [to the church],” said Ponte.
