Dubai church to launch online appointment system for worshippers


A parish priest based in St. Mary’s Church in Dubai revealed that an online appointment system will be launched soon for worshippers as part of its measure to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus disease once the government allowed them to operate. 

In an interview with Father Chito Bartolo at the Filipino Institute’s Kamusta Ka Friend segment yesterday with Orli and JC, he said that an app will be launched soon for people who want to visit the church in Oud Metha.
