Latter-day Saints in PH to Participate in #HearHim Easter Campaign

As the country observes Holy Week, Latter-day Saints in the Philippines prepare to #HearHim, a new Easter campaign initiated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It will run through Holy Week until Easter Sunday, 12 April 2020.

During the Sunday morning session of the April General Conference, President Russell M. Nelson spoke about the need to hear and listen to Jesus Christ’s voice.

“Our efforts to hear Him need to be ever more intentional,” said President Nelson “It takes conscious and consistent effort to fill our daily lives with His words, His teachings, His truths. We simply cannot rely upon information we bump into on social media with billions of words online and in a marketing saturated world constantly infiltrated by noisy nefarious efforts of the adversary.”

In relation to this, the Church has released a short video on and the Church’s social media channels to invite everyone to hear Jesus Christ’s words.


Additionally, members of the Church are invited to participate in the following activities:

It has been a yearly tradition for the world-renowned Tabernacle Choir to hold a Messiah sing-off during Easter Season. Due to COVID-19, there will be a re-air of the 2018 Messiah concert instead. Visit for more information.
