The 'Know-How' guide covers issues such as mobile phone usage, acceptable clothing and explains how both Catholics and non-Catholics should enter a church.

The video was posted on Facebook in March 2017 and at the time of publishing it had been viewed more 560,000 times.

Sancta Familia Media was set-up by cousins John Mallon and Brian Timmons.

Mr. Mallon claims the videos shared on social media have scored a total of more than three million views.

"In years gone by the apostles spread the word in any way they could," Mr. Mallon told the BBC.
"We've got it so much easier now."
