Where: St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, Parish Life Center, Mother Teresa Room, 861 Maitland Avenue, Altamonte Springs, FL 32701

Topics to be addressed:

1. How to Start and Manage a Communications Ministry

Presented by Lois Locey, St. Mary Magdalen Pastoral Associate for Administration and Stewardship

The parish has developed a communications ministry called the St. Bernardine Communications Team to improve the way God’s Word is communicated throughout the parish. How do they recruit members? Who is involved? What do they do and who is responsible for coordination and communication between the members? Some of their ministry members include writers, artists, marketing professionals, photographers, graphic artists, and communication professionals.

2. How to Start and Manage a Facebook Page

Presented by Teresa Peterson

Teresa created a Facebook Page for the Diocese of Orlando in 2010 and has been managing it ever since. She has recently attended a social media conference at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offices in Washington, D.C. and will share some of the tips and techniques covered at this conference. How do you customize your banner? Who should serve as administrator? How many times should you post a week? What kind of information should you post on Facebook? These questions and more will be discussed

3. Year of Faith Resources and Communication Strategies

Presented by Teresa Peterson

On October 11, the Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI begins. The Holy Father said, “This will be a good opportunity to usher the whole Church into a time of particular reflection and rediscovery of the faith.” How will your parish communicate the Year of Faith? Bring your ideas to share and also hear about some Diocese of Orlando communication initiatives for this year of renewal.
