Archdiocese of Manila is the Best Diocesan website

The Archdiocese of Manila won the Best Diocesan Website in the recently concluded Catholic Social Media Awards (CSMA).


The website of the Archdiocese of Manila ( was conceptualized with the initiative of the then Manila Auxiliary Bishop Socrates B. Villegas under the term of then Manila Archbishop Jaime L. Cardinal Sin. It was launched on July 25, 2003.


The creation of the website of the Archdiocese of Manila is a clear manifestation of responding to the call of the time to evangelize the people in another form that is the internet.


It was re-designed and was relaunched on March 3, 2012 during Manila Archdiocesan General Pastoral Assembly (MAGPAS) with Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle doing the ceremonial log-on to the website.

Other data on Church in the Philippines and other parts of the world and on the Vatican can also be obtained from the website.
