VAISCOM "In Defense of Truth," (IDT 1.0) Forum live on October 5 via <>

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore will restream the first-ever "In Defense of Truth" (IDT 1.0) Forum live on October 5 via <>

The agreement to restream was made recently by IDT 1.0's lead organizer the Federation of Asia Bishops' Conferences - Office of Social Communication (FABC-OSC), and the Communication Office of Singapore Archdiocese.

IDT 1.0's theme "Combating Evil in the Media, and Bearing Witness to Truth" will discuss diabolical evil as it is portrayed in the media. It will also explore ways of protecting audiences from mediated enemy attacks.

Leading the talks will be famed speakers Father Jose Francisco Syquia, Director of the Archdiocese of Manila Office of Exorcism (AMOE), and Dominican Father Rodel Aligan, Dean of the Ecclesiastical Faculty of Pontifical University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Manila.

The former chairman of the FABC-OSC Board of Bishops, Archbishop Emeritus of Lahore Lawrence Saldanha, will facilitate the open forum, while UST Senior High School Principal, Professor Mary Erika Bolanos, will host the program.

FABC-OSC's training arm Veritas Asia Institute of Social Communication (VAISCOM) co-organizes the forum with partners Catholic Media Network (CMN) and Mary, the Queen Parish (MTQP) of Novaliches Diocese.

The October 5 livestream opens at 5 pm Manila time on the YouTube channel of Radio Veritas Asia (, VAISCOM Facebook page (VAISCOM), and MTQP Facebook page (Mary The Queen Parish - Diocese of Novaliches).

Permission to restream must be secured from FABC-OSC, and the Communication Office of Singapore Archdiocese. Inquiries may be sent to [email protected]
