Post

Last October 10, 2015 the Diocese of Pasig held the 3rd Pasig Catholic Mass Media Awards. Among the winners was Communication Foundation for Asia and Family Matters TV’s special production “Mga Pastol sa Sabsaban (Pagninilay Para Sa Pagdalaw Ni Pope Francis)” under the category Best Long Film.

“Mga Pastol sa Sabsaban” reflects upon the recent visit of Pope Francis. It explores the idea on “What would you tell Pope Francis if you had the chance?” The video special stars two students — Vonn (played by Lance Raymundo) and Dorcie (Jamie Jalandoni) who interviewed ordinary citizens of different social standings about what personal statements they would share with the Pope, were they to have a one-on-one with him. Along the way, Vonn and Dorcie reflect on the answers they get, and how these relate to the teachings of Pope Francis.

The Pasig Catholic Mass Media Awards was established on 2012 to give credit to those who use their God given talents in social communications to proclaim the good news. Communication Foundation for Asia thanks PCMMA for the honor.
