Tech Talk: Where I Spent My Time Online - #CNMC15 Prep Edition


WISMTO - Catholicmom


In anticipation of the Catholic New Media Conference hosted by SQPN (Star Quest Production Network) in Atlanta, Georgia, I spent some time on the following sites:

New Evangelizers

With a slogan like, “Know your faith; Live your faith; Share your faith” this site begs to be explored. New Evangelizers is one of four ministries, founded by the very dynamic (and oft humorous) couple of Greg and Jennifer Willits, highlighted on this site, also present are Rosary Army, That Catholic Show, and Total Consecration.

New Evangelizers… provides free tools and resources for the New Evangelization to help Catholics know their faith, live their faith, and share their faith more effectively to empower them to take leading roles in the New Evangelization and encourage others to do the same.


Of Sound Mind and Spirit

Excited to see my friend, Lisa Henley Jones (next time Shelly Henley Kelly!  you were missed), I spent some time perusing their great site to see what they have been up to. Never disappointed, I found many great ideas and thoughts to ponder, including Shelly’s four reason response to Elizabeth Scalia’s call to answer the question, “Dear Catholic World, Why Do YOU Remain Catholic?”

Of Sound Mind and Spirit highlights:

  • Our Catholic Faith
  • Teaching the Faith
  • Working Mom
  • New Media; and
  • Book Reviews

Father Roderick Vonhögen

Sadly, Fr. Roderick was not able to attend the conference due to pastoral responsibilities at his parish in Holland. However, I do not regret that I spent time on this website in preparation to seeing him speak again at the CNMC. If nothing else, just getting to view, along with 1.2 million other people, his adorable reaction to seeing the new Star Wars trailer, was worth my time there!
