CBCP revives 'Undas Online' for Pinoys abroad

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has revived its website where Filipinos living and working overseas can offer prayers for their departed loved ones in the Philippines in time for All Souls' and All Saints' Days.
"For those who cannot make it to your parishes, especially Filipinos in other countries or the seafarers, you may request for Masses to be celebrated for your beloved dead," said Msgr. Pedro Quitorio, CBCP Media Office director, on Wednesday.
Overseas Filipinos who want to offer prayers should visit the website, www.undasonline.com, click "Prayer Request," and then list down the names of their beloved dead for whom they wish to offer Mass.
The CBCP said starting November 1, Masses will be held at the CBCP chapel in Intramuros, Manila.
Aside from prayer request, the website also features donate button for those who would like to make a donation or give Mass stipends that will be given to the priests who will be celebrating the masses.
Donations are not obligatory, Quitorio said.
The Undas Online website, which was established in 2011, also offers prayers and catechesis on the significance and liturgical meaning of the celebration of All Souls' and All Saints' Days. —KBK, GMA News
