“You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by the works.”
– JAMES 2:22 –
Pope Francis, in his prayer video, called the internet “a gift from God” that “have brought with it a lengthening of horizons and a widening for so many people.” The Pope reminds us Catholics of the responsibility that comes with this gift, and that such blessing should be used “towards inclusiveness which respects others for their differences.”
With the influx of information easily available on the internet and social media, it is highly essential to properly inform, train, and equip online missionaries in terms of handling technological advancements; giving emphasis on the authenticity of the content, sources, and intentions, making them effective advocates of God’s truth.
The Summit for this year is themed #Activate and is inspired by the scriptural passage from James 2:22 “You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by the works.” This will empower attending online missionaries on activating themselves as they discover strategies on delivering truth in social media, wherever they are.
This year’s Catholic Social Media Summit is also the start of a 3-year campaign called
ACT: (Activate – 2018, Connect – 2019, Transform-2020)
that will be fully operational on 2021 as we celebrate the 500 years of Christianity in the Philippines.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
The Social Media Summit is attended mostly by young professionals, social media managers, communicators and religious from dioceses, congregations and communities throughout the country.
