CATHOLIC CHICAGO BLOG LAUNCHED
Interactive Archdiocesan Communication Invites Comments
Chicago, IL (June 9, 2009) – An interactive communication that invites people of all ages to participate in an exchange of ideas around weekly, topical commentary has been launched on the Archdiocese of Chicago’s web site, www.archchicago.org.
Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago, has authored the first message and welcomes viewers’ comments that will be posted on Catholic Chicago Blog.
Each week Catholic Chicago Blog will have new contributions from Archdiocesan department and agency directors and staff. The upcoming weekly schedule of guest bloggers includes Sr. M. Paul McCaughey, O.P., Superintendent of Schools, Office of Catholic Schools; Rev. Richard P. Hynes, Director, Department of Evangelization, Catechesis, and Worship; and Frank Hannigan, Director, Family Ministries Office.
Catholic Chicago Blog joins a number of new media initiatives in the Archdiocese of Chicago, including the Cardinal’s Network, where Cardinal George frequently shares his thoughts, reflections and prayers electronically with all who subscribe by providing an email address. Additionally, the Archdiocese has expanded its presence on YouTube with two channels in English and Spanish, www.youtube.com/catholicchicago and www.youtube.com/chicagocatolico.
