The Adult Faith Formation Workshop to be held May 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon will focus on the theme, “New Media, New Mission: Evangelizing through Social Communications” and feature Oblate Father Thomas Dailey, Cardinal John Foley chair of social communications at St. Charles Seminary.
It will be held at the St. Thomas of Villanova Parish Auditorium located at 1229 East Lancaster Avenue in Rosemont. Cost for the workshop is $25. Register here.
Also speaking is Tom Shakely, new media consultant and founder of Capital Narratives, a branding and identity service.
According to the event’s organizer, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for the New Evangelization, the workshop will explore Catholics’ baptismal call to evangelization and its implementation in the area of social communications.
The event begins with theological foundations and moves into practical education on the use of new media in giving witness to Christ and his church, especially in a parish context.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
