The Diocese of Legazpi through the Diocesan Multi-Media Incorporated (DMMSI) initiated Katiwala 1008 a fund campaign strategy to support the diocesan vision of an “integrated media services for the renewed integral evangelization”.
The project aims to create a community of at least 1008 members who will commit P1800 annually for 3 years in support of the ACT Media Plan. The members are also expected to live out the mission of being stewards of truth by consistently praying for the media and Catholic evangelization, patronizing DMMSI’s products, and services, and promoting the truth that is ‘Jesus Christ’ in the age of fake news.
Katiwala 1008 members may receive 7 gifts based on their chosen commitment scheme. The monthly-installment members will get Katiwala 1008 stickers, Radio, and Social Media Greetings and TV Mass intention during their birthday. Those who pick membership payments by semester will get additional, tickets for Christmas, Easter and Anniversary raffle draws and Diario Veritas subscription. The annual full paying members will get all blessings with the addition of a special Katiwala Shirt and Bishop’s Blessing Certificate.
Interested parishioners may visit DMMSI outlets or their respective Parish Council for Social Concerns (PCSC) on Communications for application forms and membership details.
ACT Media Plan
The ACT Media Plan is a 3-year community participation and support for the diocesan evangelization in preparation for the celebration of 500th year of Christianity in the Philippines by 2021.

Activate Media 2018 is activating people, programs, and platforms. The strategy includes training and organization of media groups such as the Parokya Patrollers, OMG or Online Missionary of God, parish communications teams, and inviting volunteers to join the DMMSI team and the Katiwala 1008.
It also seeks to develop new radio and Television programs where the advocacies of various sectors and diocesan commissions are given emphasis.
Activate Media also targets strengthening the signals of Radyo Veritas Legazpi and Spirit FM, establishing digital TV for Veritas TV and sustaining the publication of Diario Veritas. (JT Bernal)
