112 YoungPeople @Church...or Not?
Young Catholics are leaving the Church. Saint Mary’s Press has asked them why. The results presented in “Going, Going, Gone” helps us better understand the dynamics of disaffiliation. The stories of the disaffiliated serve as a gift that can help us explore implications for ministry. How are we called to connect with and accompany the young people in our communities? How might we invite people to share their own stories? Where does technology (YouTube, Twitter, memes, and more) fit into all of this? We will explore these questions together.

120 Living Virtuously Through Social Media
Social media's use for information and self-expression can sometimes become an outlet for angry rants, misinformation and indiscretion. Media mindfulness is built on the foundation of critical inquiry, bringing one's values into conversation with the media messages. But what do we really value? Are those values congruent with the virtues? Virtues are habits of being that promote respect as the core of a happy life. How can we live the good life within a digital culture? See how living virtuously through social media can be the difference in our faith in a digital age.

Marketing isn't just for businesses. In essence, it is the science of knowing your audience and presenting information to them in a way they understand, motivating them to accomplish a particular goal. From that perspective, the disciples were natural marketers sharing a new message with a new audience. How do we follow their lead in our parishes today? In this session, we will help participants understand the basic strategies to market their parish and ministries to an increasingly more distant audience with the ultimate goal of bringing them to Christ and activating them as on-fire members of a parish community.

In today’s modern world of smartphones, computers, and the internet, people are connected like never before.  There are over 3 billion people online with social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, etc., yet people experience loneliness greater than any previous generation.  It seems counterintuitive, but it is the lived experience of people today, and it challenges us to rethink how we engage with each other.

People seek communities of true belonging, and our parishes and schools need to step up to this challenge.  Learn about the unique challenge and solutions to reach out to all generations and build parishes into communities of true belonging.  By meeting people where they are and accompanying them on the next step of the journey, opportunities abound in how to encounter Christ in each other.  Find ways to build parish cultures where everyone feels safe, experiences kinship to overcome digital loneliness, and shares a common set of values of meeting Christ in the poor and marginalized.

Social media's use for information and self-expression can sometimes become an outlet for angry rants, misinformation and indiscretion. Media mindfulness is built on the foundation of critical inquiry, bringing one's values into conversation with the media messages. But what do we really value? Are those values congruent with the virtues? Virtues are habits of being that promote respect as the core of a happy life. How can we live the good life within a digital culture?
