Good News for Social Media

Tue Feb 27th, 2018 - 9:30 am to 3:30 pm
At Christ the King Seminary, 711 Knox Road, East Aurora

 

Are you the one who updates the website, or social media content for your parish or ministry? We urge you to come to a FREE day-long workshop, "Good News for Social Media: How Parishes and All Catholics Can Share Faith Online," at Christ the King Seminary on Tuesday, Feb. 27, from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.  Lunch will be included.

Sister Helena Burns, FSP, has been speaking throughout the US and Canada stressing the importance of using social media engagement as a tool of evangelization. While much of social media has become bogged down in negativity, Sister Helena humorously poses the question, "What Would Jesus Do Online?" (WWJDO). Would He sit back and let negative dialogue persist, or would He try to be a light in the darkness? This workshop will serve as an entertaining way to get new ideas for engaging people online and sharing the truth and consolation our Faith provides.

We encourage pastors to designate someone from your parish to come to this workshop for help in expanding your web and social media presence. Whether your parish does a lot or a little on the web, this workshop is meant to help you take the next step in a way that's appropriate for the Catholic Church.
