Bishop Frank Caggiano joined the social networking site Instagram this morning. In a post on his Facebook page, the Bishop shared his enthusiasm for the new account.
I’m very excited to join you on Instagram today,” the Bishop wrote, “As I begin a new part of my social media ministry, I look forward to sharing with you the beauty of our Catholic faith and journeying with you in this new way!
The Bishop chose a picture from the recent World Youth Day Reunion, commending the witness, unity, and joy they displayed on the trip. He also prayed that the good work that originated from the pilgrimage to Krakow in July would continue to bear fruit in the coming months.
Bishop Caggiano’s Instagram account will compliment his already strong Twitter and Facebook presence. Over 7,800 faithful “like” his Facebook page, and 2,800 follow him on Twitter. Just 35 minutes after launching the new social media account, Bishop Caggiano had already reached 57 followers.
The Diocese of Bridgeport also maintains a robust social media presence across multiple accounts, including Instagram.
