Announcing my new job in Catholic New Media

Announcing my new job in Catholic New Media

I have a really big announcement today. As of July 1 I will be leaving my position as Manager of Gift Processing and Donor Relations for the Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of Boston to join the brand-new Office for New Media and Initiatives of the brand-new Catholic Media Secretariat of the Archdiocese of Boston. The story of the new secretariat and what it includes is in the Boston Pilot this week, along with an interview with Scot Landry, who is both my old boss and new boss.

I’m very excited about this new opportunity because I’m finally getting back to my roots as an online journalist, in a sense. I won’t be a news reporter, but I will be working to tell the story of the Church using all kinds of new media.We’ve already started with an official Facebook page and an official Twitter account. You can also find us at YouTube, Flickr, and Vimeo.

We’ll be working with ministries and parishes in the Archdiocese to help them use new media and social media to evangelize and communicate with parishioners and more. In a few years, we won’t be calling it “new” media any more; It will just be “media” and at the Archdiocese we’re getting out there to be part of it and to lead the way.

One of our first projects in the New Media office was the following video announcing the new Catholic Media Secretariat. Hope you enjoy it.
