Social Media

Social Media Office Page / Social Media Directory

Social Media is a growing and pivotal arm of the Diocesan communications effort. It is fundamentally changing how people communicate and creating new avenues of engagement as the diocese works to integrate its use in all diocesan and parish settings.

Its various “push” strategies advance diocesan messaging and news reporting, drive readers back to the website, and serve as a point-of-purchase resource to help promote special events. Social Media is a major tool that offers unprecedented visibility, community and accountability in the communications mix.
