“Come and See.” (Jn 1:46) The invitation to “Come and See” which was part of those first moving encounters of Jesus with the disciples is also the method for all authentic human communication says Pope Francis. He insists that it is necessary to move beyond the complacent attitude that “we already know” things instead we need to go and see them from ourselves to spend time with people and listen to their stories.”
The Catholic Foundation in collaboration with Tepeyac Institute will offer a Social Media and Communications Workshop on Saturday, March 25th from 9 AM -3 PM at the Pastoral Center to assist parishes in “encountering people where they are and as they are”. Currently, more than six billion people use social media worldwide.
This workshop will assist the parish to use social media, communicate with parishioners, promote parish events and activities, and welcome new members. Also, this workshop will be discussing other ways of communication and evangelization in our world today, plus a theology of communications will be discussed.
“The challenge that awaits us then is to communicate by encountering people where they are and as they are.” -Pope Francis.
