Catholic New Media Celebration MMX

At the end of this week, Lisa and I will be heading to the SQPN Catholic New Media Celebration once again. After a rousing success in San Antonio last year, this year’s sold-out event will be in Boston at the Archidiocese Pastoral Center in Braintree.

In addition to renewing last year’s friendships face to face, Lisa and I are excited to meet in person new online friends. We will be attending the blogging track, which is packed with an amazing list of speakers, and be on the lookout for new tips and ideas to better our writing. The Celebration also hosts a podcasting track simultaneously for those interested in being on the air.

If you can’t join us in person and are interested in checking out what this “Catholic New Media” thing is all about, join us via live video streaming hosted on Ustream . You can find the broadcast schedule online here. I highly recommend you check out the two plenary speakers, Fr. Robert Reed, director of CatholicTV, and popular radio personality, Lino Rulli . If you’re short on time, Cardinal O’Malley is scheduled to make brief remarks at 2:15 p.m. ET (1:15 Central).

If you watch online and see us this weekend give us a shout-out and let us know. We are expecting to come back from the CNMC excited about blogging, filled with new ideas, and with a host of new friends.
