“The 2011 CNMC will focus particularly on social media, its impact on culture, and how the Church and its institutions can effectively use it,” says Fr. Roderick Vonhögen, CEO of SQPN. “We will be exploring how social media can be used with quality content; authentic catechesis and, a true sense of mission,” he says.
The CNMC will host an exciting group of speakers and presenters, including Lisa Hendey, founder and editor of CatholicMom.com, and host of the KNXT Catholic Mom television segments which air on CatholicTV. Lisa will lead a workshop on Friday, September 30th as part of the Catholic New Media Guild day of workshops. The CNMC will also offer a special preview screening of the pilot episode of Mass Confusion, a sitcom produced by the CatholicTV Network.
Keynote speaker of CNMC 2010, CatholicTV Network President, Father Robert Reed, will be set to host The CatholicTV Network’s 20th Annual Telethon during the Catholic New Media Conference, broadcasting from the CatholicTV national headquarters.
“Due to our annual Telethon I’m not able to attend this year’s Catholic New Media Conference, but I am excited to hear of the reaction to a special preview screening of the pilot episode of Mass Confusion, says Father Robert Reed. “The sitcom was produced by the CatholicTV Network and stars Greg and Jennifer Willits, and, Mac and Katherine Barron. During the production our crew had a remarkably fine time with the Willits, the Barrons and their kids and the pilot is not only funny, but carries the important message of the Catholic faith lived out in family and friendship as well as the incredible value of every human life.”
