CatholicConExpo 2012

For those of you who are wondering how you can use social networking and new media as a mechanism to evangelize in today’s digital world, consider an event like the 2012 CatholicConExpo. I’m planning to attend since those dates are open on the calendar right now. Here’s what the event is about.

At the Second Vatican Council, we are taught that Jesus Christ and He alone fully reveals man to himself. Jesus Christ, the Word Made Flesh, is the Perfect Communicator of God, His creation, His plan, and our place in it.

At CatholiCon 2012, we will meet Christ, The Perfect Communicator through the Church’s Liturgy, both Ancient and New, through the teaching of the Catholic Faith in the Theology of Communications Track, through the concrete skills of evangelization in the Content of Communications Track and through the nuts and bolts of making the tech work in the Methods of Communications Track.

The schedule is still being created at this time but you can go ahead and get registered now.

Pope Benedict Tweets On iPad

Our Holy Father has made headlines with one tweet. And one that’s not even on his own personal Twitter account. He doesn’t have one. He did it on an iPad using the Vatican’s Twitter account. His post says, “Dear Friends, I just launched Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI.” If you haven’t checked out the new Vatican website you need to. It is much improved.

iPadre iPhone App

I came across the iPadre iPhone app while looking into the 3rd Annual Catholic New Media Celebration. So let’s make this the next iPhone app to bring to your attention.

First check out iPadre Catholic Podcasting with Fr. Jay Finelli.

Father Jay Finelli is a priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence in the state of Rhode Island. He began building web pages in 1995 and started podcasting in September of 2005. This is a great new means of evangelization. Pope John Paul II said that we are in need of a new evangelization. Podcasting is a small part of this new work of evangelization. All of us need to do our part in spreading the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

He’s got a blog along with other information on his website. I’ll be subscribing to some of his feeds and will let you know what I think when I get time. Feel free to leave your comment if you’re already a subscriber.
