Not many of us seemed to have it on our calendars but, sure enough, today (May 24th) is World Communications Day for the Church. The Vatican’s theme is “New Technologies, New Relationships: Promoting a Culture of Respect, Dialogue and Friendship.“
This past Monday, the Vatican announced the launch a new web site: pope2you.net. It is intended as a “simple, fresh site to work as a hub from which users can find some new ways the universal church is present in the digital world.” The site includes Facebook and iPhone applications.

We are excited that Fr. Bob recently set us on the path to forming a Communications Committee for the entire St. Luke community, including the parish, the school, and all of our groups and organizations. Our websites are being revamped, we will begin sending out email newsletters, we have a Facebook page, multiple Twitter accounts, and now we have this blog.
How it’s all going to work is the most frequently asked question. Our starting points are these: the recent message from the Pope of “Bearing Witness to the Faith through the Digital World” and the guidelines established by the Archdiocese of Seattle for using Electronic Communications.
It’s exciting to see the Church move forward into the digital world and we’re glad St. Luke’s is going to utilize these digital tools as well!
