Changing the Way Catholics Communicate

2 comments

Imagine getting an email from your bishop. Or getting a txt message from your pastor.

Imagine receiving a Facebook notification to remind you about a ministry meeting tonight.

Imagine, as a leader, being able to post information in one place and then have it blasted out to your entire group via email, txt msg, Facebook, or more.

Imagine being able to see everything offered by your parish in one place – and then being able to connect and get involved right there. Imagine seeing what’s going on across your diocese.

Imagine being able to control exactly how you receive the information you want from the groups you’re interested in.

Now imagine no more and just go to www.flocknote.com.

The Catholic Church is the largest, oldest and most unified organization in the history of humankind.  She carries the most important message of all – the Truth. And we have the responsibility to proclaim that Truth as effectively as possible.

Additionally, the communication technologies available to us today give us the potential for an even deeper unity – as a small group, as a parish, as a diocese, and as a Church. This is why I created flocknote.com.

Pope Benedict XVI recently addressed precisely this issue in his letter celebrating the 43rd World Day of Communications.  He recognized that our desire for communication, specifically using these new technologies, should be “seen primarily as a reflection of our participation in the communicative and unifying Love of God, who desires to make of all humanity one family.”

We must come together as one family. Help us spread the word. Tell everyone you know about Flocknote.com and encourage your group leaders to sign up.

Check it out (and watch our video) here. Thanks!

This is such a unique idea – in both the secular and Catholic world. I haven’t seen anything like it and I consider myself quite the tech junkie. I’ll do my best to spread the word – this is exactly what our church needs!

This is a great tool, I have been on it for a while and see the huge potential in it. Thanks for doing this, Matt, and we all will be behind you as you move forward with development
