Bishops’ communication institute to hold truth forum in May

An Asian bishops’ institute—Veritas Asia Institute for Social Communication (VAISCOM)—will hold an online forum on truth and discipleship 6-8 in the evening Manila time on May 6, 2022.

The theme “Guide me in your truth and teach me,” from Psalms 25:5, will be discussed by two known Church experts in media and social communication.

Bishop Paul Tighe, secretary of the Holy See’s Pontifical Council for Culture, and Father Francis Lucas, President, and CEO of the Philippine’s Catholic Media Network (CMN), will share their views about living truth as the way to follow Jesus.
Father Lucas is also the president of the Philippine Federation of Catholic Broadcasters (PFCB).

Bishop Tighe, meanwhile, used to work as secretary of the Pontifical Council for Social Communication. In that capacity, he attended several annual meetings of bishops in charge of social communication in the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC)-member bishops’ conferences.

The truth forum will have San Jose Bishop Roberto Mallari, FABC- Office of Social Communication (OSC) chairman, and Bishop Raymond Wickramasinghe of Galle (Sri Lanka), FABC-OSC board member as guest speakers.

VAISCOM is the training and formation arm of the FABC-OSC.

Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
