Consecrated Women Take Up Pope’s Digital Challenge

Greenville, Rhode Island, Nov. 22, 2010 -- In honor of World Communication Day this year, Pope Benedict XVI said: “Responding adequately to the challenge amid today’s cultural shifts, to which young people are especially sensitive, necessarily involves using new communications technologies.  The world of digital communication, with its almost limitless expressive capacity, makes us appreciate all the more Saint Paul’s exclamation, ‘Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel.’” (1 Cor 9:16)

The Regnum Christi consecrated women have taken this message as a call to evangelize using one of today’s most popular social networks on the Internet, Facebook.

Katie Tuttle, a consecrated woman involved with the project, said, “We hope that by having a Facebook page from the consecrated women of Regnum Christi, we will be able to reach more people where they are, given its broad audience.  I think the interactive nature of Facebook helps us to better communicate our life and mission as consecrated women, and to more effectively evangelize!”  

Tuttle encourages RC members and friends to take a look at the new page and join our consecrated women’s growing network of online friends!  To see the Facebook page, click here.
