National Secretariat, Tagaytay City - Let us continue "restoring all things in Christ!" The Student Catholic Action of the Philippines National Secretariat reminds all members to heed seriously recommended actions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. But, how can we continue supporting each other? Though cell, unit, and diocesan gatherings are temporarily discouraged, an alternative way to do cell, organizational, and prayer meetings is now offered.

Microsoft for NGOs granted SCAP in 2015 online services to help the movement sustain a more collaborative way of working especially for its programs and projects. In times of crisis, such as the COVID19 outbreak, it is very important to look out also for the mental and spiritual wellness of each one. We can creatively use our own resources. Constant care through online communication can be an immediate expression of compassion. Any one can be a good companion and listener physically or virtually.
