The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in a Digital World: New Media at the Service of the Word 44th World Communications Day“Church communities have always used the modern media for fostering communication, engagement with society, and, increasingly, for encouraging dialogue at a wider level. Yet the recent, explosive growth and greater social impact of these media make them all the more important for a fruitful priestly ministry.”
  12. 12. Cautions• COPPA – Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 – one should not knowingly request or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.

  16. 16. Proposed Guidelines for use in Media for Teens:• Respect• Dialogue• Friendship(Taken from World Communications Day Message 43, 2009)
  17. 17. WebPages• What does your look like?• What does your hope to accomplish?• Is it Web 1.0 or 2.0? – 1.0 is primarily GIVING information – 2.0 involves ENGAGING people, be it in the opportunity to comment on an article (a la most news stories online), a discussion board, survey, adding to an article (wiki), posting prayer intentions, adding pictures or videos

  25. 25. Email - CautionsNot as popular with teens as “older” folks – –16% send email (Pew)(may have to send a text message to alert them to read email!) – Only ___ communication is written, so miss out on body language, tone, etc., so be aware – Can become too dependent upon and assume all messages are received (things get lost in cyber-land!) – Have to maintain up-to-date email address book – Not everyone has email access (and not all who do check it regularly) – BCC so addresses not out
  26. 26. Blogs and podcasts• Together because only 14% of teens blog on a regular basis (was 28% in 2006, but more on SNS), and 19% download podcasts• POTENTIAL for both though to increase educational offerings in a non-gathered setting• Web-based logs• One person can create for multiple persons usage (great networking for catechists/ministers!)
  27. 27. Online photo albums• Quick, easy, cheap• Participants can add their own• Parental permission, especially if place names with pictures (first and last initial may be preferred)• Shutterfly, SnapFish, York, Kodak, etc.
  28. 28. VOIP• Voice Over Internet Protocol• Skye is biggest for interaction, thanks to Oprah• Might consider for discussion with another youth ministry group or popular speaker, without all the costs of transportation
  29. 29. Wikis• Can be a fun tool for discussions, as participants can add to the document.• Wikipedia is most famous. Can be a great source of info to START research…. But since anyone can add to/edit/delete portions of wiki’s, information may not be correct (so cannot be only resource, as kids are tending to use it…)
  30. 30. A wiki to visit• http://copyrightfriendly.wikispaces.com/ Copyright-Friendly and Copyleft Images and Sound (Mostly!)• for Use in Media Projects and Web Pages, Blogs, Wikis, etc.
  31. 31. eBookshttp://books.google.com has over 150,000 books in religion “section”http://openlibrary.orgwww.archive.orgOnline bibles, NAB at USCCB Trending towards colleges using eReaders rather than print text books
  32. 32. eMusic• iTunes – for Apple products – iPod, iPhone, iPad – has lectures, audio books, and videos in addition to music• Legal downloads of music• Uses in ministry – Anne Weeks
  33. 33. Virtual Worlds• Not really needed for ministry, per se, but good to be aware of, and may have applications in the future (picture a simulation of you as a nun or priest?!?!)
  34. 34. YouTube• Right now, there is 20 hours of video uploaded to this one site every hour!• Need to help teens locate good videos… but we cannot avoid links to bad ones, so parents need to be aware• Free for those with internet connection• Includes visuals with sound (sensory)• Vatican channel• NCYC
  35. 35. YouTube Cautions• Cannot “filter” out material• Not all computers have the capabilities (so cannot mandate usage)• Parental permissions needed
  36. 36. Twitter• Micro-blogging• 140 characters of less (not too deep)• Most teens NOT on at this point (8%, ages 12-17, 10% of ages 15-17)– look to see how it goes in your local area…. If on, ways to use: – Daily uplifting messages/scriptures – Event reminders – Teasers to drive to your website/pages http://www.tweetcatholic.com/
  37. 37. Social Networking Sites (SNS)• Here to stay as continue to grow• Bebo, Friendster, MySpace (66% teens), Facebook (71% under age 30), LinkedIn (7% teens, 14% adults) – “friends” – Chat – Games – quizzes• Multiple platforms
  38. 38. SNS Benefits:• Popular with teens – 71% of 7th – 12th graders have SNS profiles as saw 66% on MySpace–42% of teens using Social Networking Sites send messages via Facebook and MySpace (Pew)–26% send instant messages (i.e. “chat”)• Can provide timely information• Can get RSVPs and feedback• Can hold online discussions• Programs have privacy settings (need to explore)
  39. 39. SNS Cautions:• Not all Privacy Settings are equal, or stagnant – FB has changed twice this year already!• Public information is just that – open to anyone, including predators• Not all parents monitor, or teens create “alternate” personas• Cannot attach things like permission forms (so have to link them back to parish webpage or to an email address to request those items, if they will)• Being banned in some places/jobs/schools• Too friendly with friends – again, sep. account and use groups (closed/invitation only to protect privacy, but invite parents of the teens to join!)
  40. 40. More from Nielson report:“And teens look to their social networking for much more than gossip and photo- sharing: to teens, social networks are a key source of information and advice in a critical developmental period.57% of teen social networkers say they looked to their online social network for advice. (If we are not part of the network…)
  41. 41. Social Networks key to reaching young people, USCCB official says April 28, 2010 http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/1
  42. 42. Helen Osman, secretary for communications at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told a Rome conference April 27."We now have an opportunity to get the churchs message and story directly to Catholics -- and others -- without having to negotiate the filters of mainstream media. We have the opportunity to connect with young adult and youth Catholics to create relationships that will last their entire lives,"
  43. 43. the relationships created in social media are a series of overlapping networks• "The most successful approach by organizations to social media environments seems be an emphasis on openness, transparency and a willingness to dialogue," she said.• It costs the church nothing, for example, to have bloggers, Facebook fans and Twitter forward its digital messages throughout their social networks.
  44. 44. • young people today often use their Facebook community as their first reference point when doing research. If the church is not there, "it perpetuates for them the concept that the faith is not relevant to their daily lives," Osman said.• Using Facebook groups – Bonnie Buzenski• MyCatholicVoice.com• YourSphere.com• Flocknote – Maureen Hall
