Last June 15, 2019, CFA Vice President for Operations Ms. Pie Mabanta-Fenomeno promoted the need for critical thinkers and media literate individuals during her insightful discussion on “Critical-thinking in the Age of Internet” held at Lay Formation Center San Carlos, Makati. She served as the speaker and facilitator of the lecture and workshop, which was conducted as part of the Katolikong Pinoy Formation Series 2019 that focuses on the theme “A Hundred Faces of Holiness: A Journey with the Youth”.


In this lecture and workshop, 170 laymen and women, catechists, and youth coming from different parishes within Metro Manila gathered for the continuation of the formation series for the month of June.They learned about going beyond the surface meaning and exploring deeper messages on several media content being circulated at present. Moreover, one of the relevant and timely topics touched was the concept of viral online content. Even though social media has always been at one’s fingertips, they discovered useful facts that encouraged them to be more inquisitive and curious in utilizing digital media.


Through Dra. Gaines Marie Rosario, the Head of Layforce, the Katolikong Pinoy Formation Series continues to fulfill its mission of upholding the Catholic faith.
