In ceremonies held at the SM Cinema Cebu on September 1, Fr. Roy Cimagala was declared Best in Column Writing by the Cebu Archdiocesan Mass Media Award (CAMMA). This was his fourth award given by the same body.

He writes for The Freeman in Cebu and in other newspapers all over the country, including Daily Zamboanga Times, putting some inputs of Christian faith and morals into the issues of the day. He considers his work as a form of apostolate of public opinion and a way of reading the signs of the times.

Fr. Cimagala previously received this biennial award in 2005, 2009 and 2011 editions of CAMMA. He is currently chaplain of Paref-Southcrest School in Cebu. He started his column-writing as a hobby. According to him, he now considers it as a “very serious business with a heavy load of responsibility toward the Church and society.”
