Twitter Founder Graduate of Catholic School

Twitter creator and co-founder Jack Dorsey is from St. Louis where he graduated from Bishop DuBourg High School according to an article in the St. Louis Review magazine.

Proud parents Tim and Marcia Dorsey, members of the Cathedral Parish in St. Louis, said they never expected their son would go on to create something as big as Twitter — which unconfirmed news reports currently value at about $1 billion. The Dorseys also have two other sons, Dan and Andrew.

Asked if they credited Jack’s Catholic education (he also attended St. Dominic Savio Grade School in Affton for a short time) to his success, Marcia Dorsey said, “sure, in a lot of ways … he was always involved in speech meets, those type of things were always his cup of tea. And Catholic schools were very good at offering that.”

EarlyChristians.orgAngelo Porciuncula is a Filipino student at the University of Navarre in Spain. He has set up a great website ( for young people about the life of Jesus Christ’s early followers. There’s an interview with him on the Opus Dei website. Here’s an excerpt:

How did the idea of making a web page about the early Christians come about?

In the first place, we did it because there wasn’t any web page of its kind anywhere. Well at least none that we knew of. There are approximately 4,500 new Internet websites created daily. We thought it important to bring the way of life of the early Christians closer to the people of today, especially the youth.

Catholics can consider this web page as a family album. It is designed in such a way that anyone interested can learn about the life of the early Christians and later tell their friends about it. St. Josemaria always encouraged people to imitate the life of the early Christians, who with the example of their ordinary lives were able to change the world. Moreover, we want to echo the catechesis of Pope Benedict, who devotes his Wednesday audiences to the principal figures of early Christianity.
