MANILA, August 27, 2013—A parish youth group has launched a campaign recently aimed at reaching out to fellow youth and to the un-churched.
Kadang Dominiko, the parish youth ministry of Santuario del Sto. Cristo in San Juan City launched the “Kuha-Basa-Pasa” campaign as part of the Year of Faith activities of the parish.
According to Marlon Antolin of Kadang Dominiko, the advocacy is intended to reach out to those who do not regularly go to church and the un-churched, by making accessible to them reading materials on the Catholic catechism, among others.
“These reading materials placed on attractive acrylic cases are provided at sari-sari stores, barber shops, and other unconventional places like lounges where people, especially the youth converge. We hope that this campaign will continue even after the Year of Faith which closes on November 24, the Feast of Christ the King,” Antolin said.
The reading materials, printed in brochure forms, are displayed in high density areas within the parish. (Jandel Posion)
