Get Involved!

To build buzz, a Facebook page has been created at Facebook.com/PromoteCatholicism and we’re asking you to help spread the word too by promoting Catholic media in the following ways:

  • If you have a blog, podcast or Facebook page, share links to your favorite three blogs, podcasts, Catholic media outlets, and three other Catholic “gems” online
  • Go to iTunes and leave positive reviews for your three favorite Catholic podcasts and Catholic apps
  • Email your family, friends, fellow parishioners and contacts with the good news about your favorite three blogs, podcasts, Catholic media outlets, and three other Catholic “gems” online
  • Contact your local newspaper and tell them about Catholic Media Promotion Day, sharing the good news about media initiatives that are supporting the work of the Church
  • As your local parish to list Catholic podcasts, blogs, apps, and other media initiatives, and offer a few great suggestions to help them get started – volunteer to be a “Catholic Media Liaison” for your parish by supplying this information in the bulletin on a regular basis
  • Consider starting your own blog or podcast and share your faith using Facebook, Twitter and other new media technologies
  • Pray for all of those involved in Catholic media, that the good news of the Gospel may be spread in new and exciting ways, reaching out to the ends of the earth

Working together, we’ll make a big splash tomorrow, March 15 on Catholic Media Promotion Day.  So be sure to head to Facebook.com/PromoteCatholicism, “like the page” and get started promoting Catholic Media!

  1. So much information, so many places to find it, the Catholic cyberspace is jammed packed with great stuff. We have no excuse not to be informed for ourselves, our children, and our neighbors!

  2. Oh my, oh my! Now…how will I practice temperance with my internet time with all of these treasures to visit! lol
    Thank you so much for this page, Lisa…actually, kidding aside, many of these sites and books will provide perfect Lenten reading for my journey! I will share this page in a blog post today:)

  3. WOW! When I began my career as a Catholic writer in the later 90’s it was nearly impossible to find Catholic venues. Thanks to Lisa and her incredible vision, she has managed to put together a central place to access wonderful Catholic connections so we authors can ‘get the word out’ to others who practice our faith. Kudos and many blessings to Lisa and her dedication to our Holy Catholic Faith!
