The Archdiocese of Manila’s Commission on Social Services and Development (CSSD) has launched an online social services program that aims to reach out to the poor and the needy regardless of religion.

Dubbed as Serbisyo Katoliko, the program is hosted by Fr. Enrico Martin Adoviso, commissioner of the CSSD. It is aired every Thursday at 7 p.m. on the Facebook page of the Commission on Social Services and Development of the Archdiocese of Manila.

The social services program features the services of ministries particularly those that provide assistance to the poor and the needy.

“Serbisyo Katoliko is not just for Catholics. It is for all religions. Just like Jesus, we welcome and embrace everyone. We will not say no to anyone. We will respond to you whatever your religious affiliation might be,” said Fr. Adoviso.

According to the Archdiocese of Manila, the ministries that will be featured in the episodes of Serbisyo Katoliko include Caritas Manila, Domus Mariae Foundation, Damayan Program, Ministry on Ecology, PPCRV, Sanlakbay, Ministry on Public Affairs, Ministry on Persons with Disabilities, Ministry for Labor Concerns, Pondo ng Pinoy-RCAM, Ministry on Restorative Justice, Handicapped Center Lourdes, and the Ministry on Health Care.
