Coronavirus Aftermath: CBCP To Use PayMaya In Lieu Of Sunday Collection Baskets

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Diocese of Rome has canceled all public Masses until April 3 in response to the coronavirus outbreak. The announcement by the vicar general of the diocese, published Sunday evening, follows a decree by the Italian government suspending all public religious ceremonies.

With the advent of local transmission of COVID-19, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Phiippines (CBCP) is expected to do the same for all Roman Catholic Churches throughout the country.

The cancellation of Sunday masses is expected to severely impact the Catholic Churches’ collections which is a major source of income.

But leave it to the entrepreneurial skills of the CBCP hierarchy to come up with alternative modes of collecting money from churchgoers.

Informed sources told The Adobo Chronicles that CBCP is now setting up PayMaya as an alernative to the Sunday collection baskets.

PayMaya is an online payment account that has an app where you can load up in convenience stores, pawnshops, and mall and can purchase anything online.

It’s business as usual!
