San Roque de Manila Parish wins Best Video in 2018 Faith Lens




San Roque de Manila Parish in Blumentritt won this year’s Faith Lens competition.

“Katok ng Pag-asa”, the video entry of San Roque de Manila Parish won the Best Video award in the first Faith Lens
film festival of the Commission on Social Communications of the Archdiocese of Manila in celebration of the 52nd
World Communications Day.

Faith Lens 2018 is a one-minute video making contest that dwells on the theme used by Pope Francis in his message for
the World Communications Sunday 2018, “The truth will set you free’ (John 8:32), Fake News and Journalism for Peace.”

Aside from bagging the Best Video Award, the entry “Katok ng Pag-asa” also received Best in Concept award.

Lou Jeanne San Juan, scriptwriter of the winning entry was overwhelmed after receiving the award. According to her,
one of the main reasons why their parish joined the contest was to support the Office of Social Communications project.

“We believe that through videos and other forms of media we can also evangelize. We are tremendously overjoyed for
bagging the Best in Concept and Best Video Awards.”, Lou Jeanne stated.

The Best Video award, First Runner-Up, and Second Runner-Up received the corresponding amount of P10,000.00, P8,000.00,
and 5,000.00 respectively.

There were 6 parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila who joined the contest namely: San Roque de Manila Parish,
Immaculate Conception Parish, San Felipe Neri Parish, San Juan Nepomuceno Parish, Saint Anthony Shrine, and Saint John the Baptist Parish.

Our Lady of Hope Parish and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish (Diocese of Cubao) and San Roque Cathedral (Diocese of Caloocan) |
from the Ecclesiastical Province of Manila also joined the competition.

More than 80 members of the Social Communications Ministry of the different parishes participated in the event last Saturday,
May 12, 2018 which was held at the Arzobispado de Manila. It also marked the second SOCOM General Assembly.

Present during the occasion were Assistant Commissioner, Rev. Fr. Jojo Buenafe, and Second Assistant Commissioner, Rev. Fr. Roy Bellen.

Guest Speaker, Executive Secretary of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines Public Affairs, Rev. Fr. Jerome Secillano,
encouraged the SOCOM ministers to communicate not only the news they read. He emphasized that as “Social Communicators”,
they should not be afraid to speak and proclaim the truth which is Jesus Christ.

Towards the end of the event, SOCOM Commissioner Rev. Msgr. Jose Clemente Ignacio congratulated the participants who joined
and won the contest and at the same time thanked all the members of the SOCOM Ministry who attended the event.

“I’d like to encourage everybody and the prayer is for all of us to really be more zealous in what we are doing in our Social Communications
Ministry,”Rev. Msgr. Ignacio said.

World Communications Day is celebrated on the Sunday before Pentecost which in 2018 falls on May 13, the Solemnity of the
Ascension of the Lord. (Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
