[Video] Bishop Coyne joins the Twitter stream at the Catholic New Media Conference

October 4, 2011


This past weekend, I was able to attend my first CNMC (Catholic New Media Conference). The fourth annual event was graciously hosted by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann and the Archdiocese of Kansas City at their Pastoral Center. More than 125 of the best and brightest ‘New Media’ Catholics were in attendance and it was a great experience.

Matthew Warner – who will be a presenter at next week’s Archdiocesan Communications Day – has written a synopsis at The National Catholic Register blog. It’s a good read.

One of the many wonderful surprises was Auxiliary Bishop Coyne – Archdiocese of Indianpolis – who ‘live’ tweeted the event. Brandon Vogt recorded a short video interview with the Bishop about his thoughts on Catholic New Media.

2011 Catholicon Expo begins today

August 26, 2011

What is CatholiCon?

Since the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago, she has always sought to use all forms of human communication to advance Our Lord’s command to make disciples of all nations. CatholiCon brings all of the traditional forms in which The Church communicates as well as the new forms of media that bring the Gospel to the emerging Digital Continent.

In July, I interviewed two members of the Catholic Underground, Father Chris Decker and Joshua LeBlanc, and they shared some of the goals and hopes for the Expo.

A recent video – loaded with techie-humor – provides a taste of what’s in store for the weekend.

If you’re not attending, you can follow the action via Twitter on the #CatholiCon hashtag.
