Now on the mobile app: ‘Online Visita Iglesia’
the Visit Iglesia online is now accessible via a mobile application.
With COVID-19 in mind, the FaithWatch makes it easier for its subscribers to access the content of the website.
For this Holy Week, the app gives the season a bigger spotlight in its IOS and Android app, like the “pray with you” audio from the Stations of the Cross.
FaithWatch even enabled a Visita Iglesia “virtual tour” of 14 cathedrals nationwide and Holy Week video reflections.
The app was launched in 2021 to help users find live masses during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since 2011, the online Visita Iglesia has traditionally been visited during Holy Week. It offers users online retreats or memories, among other things. It was originally intended for overseas Filipino workers and those who are too sick to travel.
Meanwhile, the FaithWatch app, which can be downloaded both in android and iOS devices, just launched in September 2021 to help users find Live Masses during the height of the pandemic.
Its “Mass Times” section displays churches near your location and some information and guides on how to get there.
The app also offers daily gospel readings, a novena list, biblical reflections, and catechetical material in video and digital format.
Visita Iglesia Online and FaithWatch are projects of the CBCP Media Office in collaboration with Areopagus Communications, Inc. and Heart of Francis Foundation.
