Bariles just found out this afternoon that effective this Sunday, December 20 and all Sundays thereafter, shoppers of Robinsons Place GenSan have another event to look forward to inside the mall.

A Holy Mass will be offered at 11:00am every Sunday at the center of their huge atrium or activity center.  This, after the management got the go-signal from Diocese of Marbel Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez to their request of holding one there for the benefit of Catholics who weren’t able to catch the mass early during the morning at any of GenSan’s six parish churches and one Novitiate Chapel.

This coup of sorts augurs well for Robinsons which still has to attract the same number of weekend shoppers as those of either KCC or Gaisano.  Offering their shoppers the chance to fulfill their Sunday obligations inside their airconditioned mall before they shop or dine is the best marketing weapon on their hands so far.

Airconditioned comfort and convenience while hearing Sunday mass, why not?

We just hope that Robinsons GenSan’s management go up another rung by not only giving their mass offertory collections to the diocese but by providing coin cans to all their checkout counters for the benefit of Bishop Gutierrez’s flagship project – the Bahay Pari.

That will endear Robinsons more to the Catholic faithful not only of GenSan but the whole of Soccsksargen.  What do you think, Sir Dan Camat?
