Like many of our readers, I’ve become slightly fascinated by the possibilities of Pinterest. Our friend and intrepid app reviewer Sarah Reinhard seems to have the iPad/iPhone beat covered, so I’ve decided to shift my weekly tech column to a look at what’s up in the world of Catholic Pinterest. From crafts to convents, from basilicas to bacon (or the lack thereof), Catholics seem to be flocking to Pinterest to share their passion for their faith.
And despite what some may think, it’s not just for crafty chicks.
This week, I discovered the wonderful Catholic Pinterest group board, under the able management of my fellow Vatican Blogger Meeting attendee Allison Girone. I located some of my favorite publishers like Our Sunday Visitor. I even came across a Proud Roman Catholic board by former Marine Fred Stemp.
So I thought it would be fun each week to share a Catholic Pinterest Board of the Week. Along the way, we will look at the faith-filled, the artistic, the inspired and the fun.
This week’s pick comes from my good friends at Peter & Paul Ministries. If I need a smile, I don’t have too venture too far online to find my buddies Ashley and Devin, who are constantly dreaming up new ways to employ technology to share their love for our faith. Much of their work is dead serious, but this week’s “Catholic Pinterest Board of the Week” shows their fun side. Since today is a Lenten Friday, it seems only natural to share the good natured Meatless Friday as our very first entry.
If you’re a Catholic using Pinterest, please drop a link in the comments below to share your boards. Also, I’d love to hear about why you love Pinterest and how you think this latest craze might be used to spread the Good News.
