Social media an opportunity to evangelize

It has been nearly 4 years since the Diocese of Bridgeport has taken to social media to spread the good news of Jesus Christ, build a digital community of faith, and build awareness for diocesan initiatives.

In that time, the diocese has seen tremendous growth across many of its platforms, as well as expansion into new social media mediums such as Instagram and Facebook Live. The diocese is constantly adding new video series, segments, and ways to digitally connect with Catholics in Fairfield County.

“Social media is not only a way to reach members of our diocese but it is an avenue of evangelization and a way to spread the message of the gospel,” says John Grosso, Director of Digital Media for the Diocese of Bridgeport.
