Thank you for giving me the tools (and the kick in the pants!) to pursue more of an online presence for the ministry I am involved with ( ministry to the sick). Since many of those involved in the ministry are seniors who do not use social media as often, I wondered about the benefit. I see now that this is a way to also reach out and increase awareness of the ministry to many who would not otherwise know about it. I feel enriched by these new skills and ways of doing ministry. Thank you!

Thank you, Cathie. I can only encourage use of the Internet for ministry. It takes people with vision and imagination to find ways to implement it in their own situations. It sounds like that is what you are doing. Good job!

Susan,
I want to first of all congratulate you on reaching such a milestone – hurray for you! And I want to cheer your cheerleading the rest of us; I find your help invaluable. Keep it up; we need you, even with the resistance we put up, we really do want to move forward. So thanks for pushing, pulling and encouraging us along.

Thank you, Nancy. It is words like yours that keep me going.

Evangelization would be greatly helped if Parish web sites also listed a variety of excellent Catholic sites, including ETWN and those of USCCB. Blogs are fine, but most parishes are afraid of religious sites not sponsored or operated by priests or religious orders… even if lay person has a degree in theology and taught RCIA classes. If this New Evangelization is to go anywhere the clergy will have to involve the laity. Jim
