On January 15, 2013, I drove down to Fresno, California to record two television episodes (“The Church and Social Media” – Parts 1 and 2) for the diocesan owned television station, KNXT with Lisa Hendey, creator of CatholicMom.com. We were on the show titled “Forum for a Better Understanding,” and we were interviewed by the host, Jim Grant. If you missed the first episode, click here.
Here’s how Lisa described the content of this second episode:
In this video, Carson and I discuss the USCCB’s social media initiatives, the Bishops and Bloggers meeting, the CNMC and our own roles in using the tools of social media in the New Evangelization.

On her blog post over on Patheos, Lisa said:
This “Forum” program is typically a multi-faith conversation, which explains the huge Star of David behind Carson’s head. It was our goal with this and the companion program (which I’ll share tomorrow) to educate the average person in the pew about what’s happening in Catholic new media.
I truly enjoyed the opportunity, and Lisa’s hospitality was second to none!

A Nation Rises
I couldn’t agree more, Mr. President.
In the Catholic world, the Church is growing in its sponsorship of the new media. Parish staffs are investing in quality websites. Dioceses are promoting online learning. Parish ministries are paying for subscriptions for Catholic new media tools.
And… Catholic apostolates are paying talented developers to create incredible Catholic mobile apps.
I’m happy to say that one of my favorite new-and-upcoming Catholic apps is no longer up and coming. It has arrived! [Read the rest of this blog entry]

For the Year of Faith, flockNote will email you a select portion of the Catechism of the Catholic Church every day for 1 year. Read that email each day, and in one year, you’ll have read the entire Catechism.
When I was a grad student at Franciscan University, I read the Catechism from cover to cover in 3 months, and it changed my life. The Catechism is an incredible systematic presentation of the meaning of life and is filled with spiritual treasures. It’s one of those books that you definitely don’t want to judge by its cover.
Sign yourself up at flocknote.com/catechism. (Enter your email address, click “Subscribe,” and you’re good to go.)
It all began on October 11, 2012. If you’re signing up late, no worries. Previous archived emails may be read at https://www.flocknote.com/list/54755
