Priest in the Philippines - level 1

04-01-2016 15:00

A Catholic priest rides a hoverboard during Christmas Eve Mass in the Philippines. People in the church like his Christmas song, but his bosses don’t like it.

His bosses say that the priest’s actions are wrong. He has to stop his work for some time and think about it. This can help him.

81% of the Filipino people are Catholics.

Difficult words: priest (a person who does ceremonies at a church), hoverboard (an electric skateboard), mass (a church ceremony).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
