I just came into the Church this Easter, and I am SO happy to have finally come home considering that I first began considering the Catholic Church about five years ago.
Anyway, I’d love to get involved with the Church, and I can think of a very helpful way. Our Church has no online presence at all – no website, Facebook, etc. I’m not super young (32), but I feel this would be a great way to reach out to the youth and other people in the community. Catholics are very much in the minority here. In fact, our priest/pastor is the only priest who serves the entire cluster (4 churches), each with small congregations (sorry if congregation is not a Catholic term, not sure what else to call it).
I have experience setting up basic websites and blogs, and I’m also experienced with managing Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, etc. However, I’m reluctant to mention my suggestion because I’m “new”, I’m somewhat shy, and I don’t want them to think that I’m trying to overly-modernize the parish.
Do you think this is a worthwhile pursuit? If so, should I mention it now, or should I wait until I’ve been there longer?
