The theme of the contest is “How do Catholic school communities of faith, knowledge and service produce a family fully alive?” and its goal is to share the importance of Catholic school communities through creativity.
“We are delighted to bring the creativity and energy of school children into our planning,” said Donna Farrell, executive director of the World Meeting of Families. “This will bring the World Meeting team and Catholic school system closer together as we all prepare for the celebration of the congress and papal visit in September.”
One video will be selected per school and all entries will be shared publicly on the World Meeting of Families-Philadelphia 2015 social media networks including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Voting will be open to the public and three winning entries will be determined by the number of Facebook “likes” and Twitter “favorites” received between Jan. 25 and 31.
The winning videos will also be shown during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia Sept. 22-25.
The contest is one of several planned that are designed to engage both children and adults in the 2015 World Meeting of Families’ catechesis and theme, which is “Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.”
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.
