Cheshire, Connecticut, April 4, 2011 -- Seminarians from the Legion of Christ are spreading a little “fun and joy” while getting the word out about themselves through their new accounts on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

“These accounts show a side of the Legion the world probably needs to see right now,” said Brother Peter Dolan, LC, who is helping to coordinate the social networking efforts from Cheshire, Connecticut. “We are just trying to meet people where they are and build relationships. 

“Our Facebook page called ‘LC Chesire’ is like an open door to the life in the Cheshire seminary,” he said.  “On the page, visitors can come in, meet us, and get an idea of what we do here.”

The Cheshire social networking efforts are all connected through the ‘LC Chesire’ Facebook page. Two highlights are the Legion seminarians’ recent snowball fight, and their Lenten prayer campaign.

“People submit intentions and we pray for them; it’s that simple,” said Brother Peter. “We get to fulfill our mission of praying for others, and they get the power of our prayers.  We think it is a real win-win.”
