It is with humble thanksgiving that we announce the nomination of the website of the Young Thomasian Professionals Lay Dominican group and the Facebook page of Santisimo Rosario Parish for the Best Catholic Organization Website and Best Parish Facebook Pagecategories, respectively. Both are in their first year of active ministry on social media.
The awards night is happening on November 18, 2017 at Siena College, Quezon City.
The YTP website was made by select members and has received the approval of the Prior Provincial and the Provincial Council of the Dominican Laity (Dominican Province of the Philippines) last year. The purpose is to reach out to Thomasian youth and introduce to them the Dominican spirituality and vocation through the powerful means of social media.
The website features basic information about the Dominican Order, the Lay Dominican vocation and spirituality, lives of saints, brief catechisms, infographics, and news and updates. Recommended materials or articles are also published regularly, especially on the feast of Dominican saints.
The YTP group also assists in managing the Santisimo Rosario Parish Facebook page in their capacity as the newly-established Parish Social Communications Ministry. It is headed by Rev. Fr. Louie R. Coronel, O.P., parish priest and YTP spiritual director.
Last September, the Ministry introduced the live streaming of Masses and other celebration in conjunction with the 75th anniversary and fiesta of Santisimo Rosario Parish. The monthly streaming of Sunday pro populo mass with the parish priest is scheduled to be launched on November 26, Solemnity of Christ the King.
