Zoom Mass

“My friends and I were able to come up with a solution by holding Fr. Ro’s mass through an application called Zoom. It allows us to keep an intimate mass experience which feels more fulfilling than a simple live video.”

My friends and I currently host daily mass services, at 4PM, with Fr. Ro Atilano. Fr. Ro is currently on quarantine after a recent visit to the Holy Land. He was not satisfied with live-streamed mass that you can easily find all over social media. He believes that interaction with his church-goers are important facets of this practice. For him, there should be bayanihan during mass, even if it is done online. My friends and I were able to come up with a solution by holding Fr. Ro’s mass through an application called Zoom. Zoom allows us to have interactions with a lot of participants during mass. They can talk to Fr. Ro and say their intentions. It allows us to keep an intimate mass experience which feels more fulfilling than a simple live video. We called this project, the Puhon initiative. We believe this initiative brings so much hope in a time when people really needs it.
