Gospel Now: Coming To Your School and Homes this June

MARCH 3RD 2009

CCirculation of the latest CFA publication, Gospel Now, starts with the new school year in June.

Aimed at late high school and early college students, Gospel Now focuses on current social issues and tries to relate these to the Gospels. Main articles in the maiden issue include:

  • “Why Kids and Drugs Don’t Mix” – A discussion of drug abuse among young people.
  • “Youth and the Power to Vote” – PPCRV and NAMFREL chairperson Ambassador Tita de Villa urges the youth to be actively engaged in the 2010 elections.
  • “There’s Still Hope” – Magsaysay awardee Mayor Jesse Robredo of Naga City tells young people to stay and help in reforming their country, instead of fleeing to foreign destinations.

Gospel Now is full of Gospel commentaries, plus study guides to help readers understand the Gospel better and apply its teachings in daily life. There are also comics stories. In addition, veteran filmmaker Clodualdo del Mundo Jr. writes about “Juana Change,” the Internet satires that are gaining popularity among young viewers.

CFA decided to launch Gospel Now in response to the clamor of civil society groups for media materials that would animate the youth into social action. Among these groups are the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP), the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) and the National Movement for Free Elections (NAMFREL).

Gospel Now is published bi-monthly. To order or to gain more info, please contact CFA’s Sales Department, Tel: 782-1510, Fax: 713-2975, E-mail: sales@cfamedia.org.
