BEC pa more: BEC (Basic Ecclesial Communities) Kalyeserye

For several months, viewers in the entire country have been so hooked into watching “Eat Bulaga!”, a popular noontime variety show.  It has a segment air live within the “Juan for All, All for Juan” portion  entitled “Kalyeserye.”  This features live improvisation from actors, Alden Richards, Maine Mendoza, Wally Bayola, Jose Manalo and Paolo Ballesteros who all play various roles.  The other hosts of Eat Bulaga! stationed at the studio serve as  commentators and interact with the characters and the audience. Kalyeserye has elements of comedy-drama, parody, romantic comedy and reality television. The term "Kalyeserye" is a play on the Filipino word teleserye (television series) and is a portmanteau of the Tagalog words kalye (street) and serye (series).  Kalye (Street) refers to the location outside the studio which is usually shoot out on the streets of Metro Manila or in the provinces of the Philippines that serve as the remote setting of the parody segment.

This popular TV program was adapted by our parish youth group who was tapped by our Basic Ecclesial Communities (BEC) leaders to echo the content of the last BEC Formation Seminar which dealt on the Culture of Indifference.  The youth entitled their version; “Sa Tamang Panahon, Ang Kalyeserye ng Munting Sambayanan.” (At the Right Time, The Kalyeserye of the Basic Ecclesial Communities) held last November 5, 2015 at the parish Church.  The major characters especially the three “Lolas” (grandmothers) were portrayed by our talented youth.  They were the ones bringing out the main message of the serious issue of the emerging culture of indifference.   Different values of caring, respecting other cultures, sympathy and empathy were touched throughout the comedy skit.  The presentation was full of fun with songs and dances and sometimes impromptu dialogues.  Everybody was not only entertained but learned something especially on the importance of taking part in building and strengthening the BEC.  A new lifestyle of living together that value relationship must be developed. And this is possible through BEC.
