Digital festival gathers artists and YouTubers to promote new evangelization
This Saturday, Oct. 10, Red de Divulgadores Católicos, a group of content creators and YouTubers is organizing the first edition of a virtual festival gathering young artists from around the world.
Red de Divulgadores Católicos (RDC)
“We decided to form a digital community in which we share experiences and exchange ideas about this new type of evangelization through social networks.”
“This year, the theme is related to the beatification of Carlo Acutis as a role model as a young person, an evangelizer and, above all, a cyber-apostle.”
Other themes will include vocations to religious or married life, the defense of life and caring for society's most vulnerable.
Participants include Franciscan YouTuber Elio Jorge Rojas, known as “El Peregrino Gris,” and Peruvian artist Elton Rey, who has performed at World Youth Day four times.
“We'll be able to follow this event, listen to talks, conversations, about evangelization. I'll also be participating. We'll be singing and discussing being God's influencers, protagonists of change, as Pope Francis tells us today.”
The event will conclude with a virtual Mass. The festival can be followed live this Saturday, Oct. 10, starting at 3 p.m., Peru time, on the RDC official Facebook page: www.facebook.com/divulgatores
