WITH public masses still suspended, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has opened an online portal, where people can send their mass intention requests.
In a report by CBCP News, CBCP media office director Msgr. Pedro Quitorio bared that they are prepared to accept request for mass intentions amid the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.
“Amid the Covid-19 crisis, we are encouraged to make good use of the digital technology for our pastoral concerns and liturgical celebrations,” said Quitorio.
To request for mass intentions, whether thanksgiving, petition, or repose of the soul, the priest said the faithful may visit https://cbcpnews.net/cbcpnews/mass-intentions/.
In the said webpage, CBCP News has provided forms for the faithful to accomplish.
Quitorio said they will then ask priests, who will say masses online for their intentions.
Earlier, the CBCP recommended the suspension of all public masses and other church activities amid the Luzon-wide lockdown imposed by the government.
In turn, the different archdioceses and dioceses have resorted to holding masses closed to the public but are broadcasted live online, television, or radio. (HDT/SunStar Philippines)
