Fr. Robert Reed Will Give Keynote Address at Catholic New Media Celebration in Boston
On August 7, 2010 Fr. Robert Reed will give the 9:30AM keynote address at the 3rd Annual Catholic New Media Celebration (CNMC) in Boston, Massachusetts.
The CNMC MMX is an international conference focused on evangelization through new media such as blogging, podcasting, social media, and more.
The 2010 CNMC will also feature Catholic radio personality Lino Rulli, blogger Thomas Peters, Boston’s Cardinal Seán O’Malley, and many others. A waiting list has been established as the event is fully sold out.
The CNMC aims to respond to Pope Benedict XVI’s recent message that God’s love “must be expressed in the digital world… as something concrete, present and engaging.”
The CNMC aims to inform and inspire how interactive new media platforms, such as blogging, podcasting, and social media are created, shared, and implemented. Within an atmosphere of Christian community, attendees will learn how to create and share content for the benefit of the universal Catholic Church.
“This year’s CNMC will focus particularly on three things,” says Fr. Roderick Vonhögen, CEO of SQPN. “We will be exploring the best practices for creating quality content; how authentic catechesis and spirituality are incorporated; and, how a true sense of mission is instilled in those who consume this media and become a part of our online communities,” he says.
