CEBU City, June 26, 2013—An Indie film that promotes child protection and family values had a special screening yesterday in this city to raise funds for the delegates of the Archdiocese of Cebu to the World Youth Day.
The film “Boses” has won several awards from prestigious film award-giving bodies here in the country and abroad for its advocacy of child protection and family values.
Endorsed by the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines and the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Youth, the screening will benefit the 38-member delegation of the archdiocese.
Marlito Cabigas of the Commission on Youth (COY) Cebu and spokesperson for the ‘Barkada ni Pedro’ (BNP), said the fund-raising campaign also aims to help their group to bring San Pedro Calungsod through BNP facebook fan page to young people of the world who will join the international gathering in Rio de Janeiro.
The group invites everyone to like the ‘Barkada ni Pedro’ (BNP) Facebook fan page which also spreads catechesis about the young Filipino martyr through daily updates and posts.
Aside from liking ‘Barkada ni Pedro’, followers and fans may also like the ‘I Support COY-Cebu Delegation to WYD’ Facebook fan page, as a show of support to Cebu delegates to the international gathering.
The film screening was attended by students, members of youth organizations and lay faithful from different parishes in the archdiocese. Those who were not able to watch the advance screening can still watch the regular screening on July 31 at various cinemas nationwide. (Jandel Posion)
