Seminarian Enrico “Rix the Seminarian” Macrohon and the Varsitarian, the official student publication of UST, were recognized in the 2020 Catholic Social Media Awards, results of which were announced earlier this week.
Rix the Seminarian was awarded as the Best Catholic Vlog. His Facebook page, which now has over a million followers, features his sharing on Catholic teachings and morals, presented in a light and relatable manner. Interspersed with these vlogs are inspirational quotes and stories, as well as airing of the daily Masses.
The Varsitarian was awarded as the Best Catholic Organization Website. The 93-year-old publication is one of the oldest existing school papers in the country. Among its sections is Witness, which focuses on content of a Catholic orientation. Over the decades, it has chronicled important religious events in the University and outside, such as the historic Papal visits that have taken place in the campus.
The Catholic Social Media Awards is organized by Areopagus Communications and YouthPinoy.
