Reflections after CNMC '11

This weekend was a fruitful one on all accounts! Here at CatholicTV our Telethon was even more successful than last year. As always, our friends have been so good to us. We are so grateful for your support, for the friendship of our patroness St. Thérèse of Lisieux and most importantly for God's continual stewardship of our mission here at CatholicTV.

I, however, was not here for the Telethon, but was attending the equally fruitful Catholic New Media Conference in Kansas City, KS. I was blessed to meet some great folks in the world of Catholic New Media (as well as fans of the media producers that were represented there this weekend). We tackled some important issues facing Catholic Media, namely the need to continually produce relevant, entertaining and faithful content. Everyone had important insights to offer, and we all left feeling rejuvenated and encouraged in our missions.

I loved hearing from Lisa Hendey of Catholic Mom, Pat Gohn, Matt Warner & Jeff Geerling of flockNote, Sr. Anne Flanagan (the nunblogger) and Seàn Patrick Lovett of Vatican Radio. I was especially excited to see the reaction of the audience to the CatholicTV produced sitcom, Mass Confusion, starring Greg & Jennifer Willits and Mac & Katherine Barron. It was clearly a hit at the conference, so we'll be looking forward to your reaction when it airs on Thanksgiving.

At the close of his keynote, Seàn Patrick Lovett exhorted us all to use our new media prowess to "go and do something beautiful for God." We're excited to do that here at CatholicTV, and I have no doubt that everyone else at the conference will do the same.
