  • 1. Mission & Media: Web 2.0
    How media is changing and what that means for the work of the Province
  • 2. Web 2.0
    A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them (Web 1.0).
    Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites and other media.

  • 8. David & Goliath Factor
    Our Province has a long history of employing the power of the media from the very first magazine in the 1940’s. Today, we understand how vital it is we have a significant presence both in print, visual and internet media. And, as we get smaller in number, we will rely more on media to help us to share.
    We needed to develop a “communications plan” that involves all aspects of media. With the smaller number of confreres in the future available for this, and the greater need for more expertise, we need to…
  • 9. The Illumicom Report
    The congregation lacks a clear public identity, congregational mission statement and focus in publications
    Xaverians are not known outside of immediate circles
    External communications efforts sought in congregational feedback
    Good internal congregational communication
    Newsletter, website, interpersonal communication top sources for information; blog of little interest, e-newsletter read by many
    Strong online presence attractive but could be even more effective at articulating the Xaverian mission
    What’s your reaction to “Xaverians are not known outside of immediate circles”?
  • 10. Our Communications Plan
    “Our founder was among the first to use modern means of mass communication in the service of the Gospel. The new technological possibilities we have today offer previously unheard of possibilities and we should take advantage of them; nevertheless, we must never forget that they should never substitute an authentic life witness.” (60: What We Do: RMX)
  • 11. Develop core Mission Statement
    Develop Vision Statement to incorporate and reflect the values and goals of the Congregation of the United States Region
    Develop modern logo as an accurate graphic representation of the Xaverian Mission and ministry
    Expand advertising and development efforts using traditional and online media, including secure web solicitation
    We need to investigate the most appropriate method for online donations using the Congregation’s 501C3 status

    Explore to possibility of using the internet for additional outreach, including, but not limited to, “chat rooms” and Internet radio, online retreats, webinars, etc…
