Interactive Connections Conference 2012 Orlando

Bishop Noonan’s Welcome on Sister Caroline Cerveny’s Cyberpilgrim’s Blog

Fr. Lawrence Rice’s Keynote:  “The Church is the original social network,” says @lrice. “If tech is not facilitating it, we are doing it wrong.”  Fr. Rice discussed ways to use technology to increase communication within our Catholic communities. He suggested that we put the bulletin online rather than printing so it can be accessed at any time; allow online discussions so there is two-way communication and not just a one-way push of information; use online databases to gather information; allow online donations and contributions without the need of a signed piece of paper; translate publications into appropriate languages and make them available online; etc. He recommended that we read the book from Gutenberg to Zuckerberg

  • Another book to consider reading is Brandon Vogt’s The Church and New Media.
