The New Areopagus - Sharing Stories of Faith in a Digital World
Thursday, June 14, 2018
1:30 P.m. to 2:45 P.M.
St. Pope John Paul II famously referred to communications media as the "new Areopagus" - referring to the cultural center of the ancient world were St. Paul proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Catholics embrace the new ardor, expressions, and methods of the New Evangelization, it is abundantly clear that we must take advantage of new ways of sharing our stories of faith. In this session, Joe Paprocki, DMin, and Julianne Stanz will identify what it means to "share stories of faith" and how parishes can effectively utilize social media and technology for sharing stories of faith that invite others to encounter Jesus Christ in a personal way.
