“Konek-Tahan” focuses on Evangelization

The main task of a Social Communications Ministry is to communicate the importance of the message of God.

Putting into perspective the task of a Social Communications Ministry, Rev. Fr. Roy Bellen of the Archdiocesan Commission on Social Communications pointed out the importance of a social communicator’s ability to evangelize the Word of God during the fourth vicariate visitation in San Felipe Neri on September 22, 2018.

According to him, a social communicator must reflect the teachings of Christ in words and deeds in various forms of communication in and out of the ministry.

“There are many ways of saying things. At ito po ang diwa ng ating trabaho sa social communications na when we say things hindi lang ito basta nakakatuwa, nakakaaliw, and people are entertained, rather we say something true,” Fr. Bellen said.

A social communicator, according to him, must remember three important things when partaking in the mission of evangelization namely, the message, medium, and the process.

“Three things, the message is always about the Word of God. The medium, speak simply as how the Lord being God as he is, he spoke in the language of farmers, of fishermen that they would understand. It is not about him, it is about the message. At huling huli, the process. At some point, you can only do so much. Sana po let God do his work as well hindi po tayo ang mga Kristo,” Fr. Bellen said.

On August 18, 2018, the ACSC conducted its third visitation in the Vicariate of Saint John the Baptist. It was held at the Arzobispado de Manila coinciding with the SOCOM third general assembly.

The vicariate visitation is dubbed as “KONEK-TAHAN” that is aimed at encouraging and equipping the ministers/communicators in the parish to utilize their technical skills, develop creativity, and promote catholic faith and values un parish and vicariate levels.

The ACSC is currently organizing and mobilizing parishes to actively participate in the Church’s evangelization through the mechanism of effective communication. 

The Vicariate of Saint John the Baptist is composed of the following parishes: Chapel of the Eucharistic Lord, mary the Queen, Territorial/Personal), Archdiocesan Shrine of Mary the Queen of Peace (Our Lady of EDSA) Quasi Parish, Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint John the Baptist, Santuario de San Jose, and Santuario de Santo Cristo while the vicariate of San Felipe Neri is composed of Archdiocesan Shrine of Divine Mercy, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of the Abandoned, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Welfareville, Saint Dominic Savio, San Felipe Neri, and San Roque respectively.
