Catholics Going Mobile: Opportunities for Evangelization Using Mobile Apps

A recent study by the Pew Research Center found that more than 90% of American adults use cell phones and 56% have smartphones (June 2013). According to the study, "the cell phone is the most quickly adopted consumer technology in the history of the world."

Knowing this, how can the the Catholic Church use mobile technology as a part of the New Evangelization? How can we make sure the Church is not left behind the times as an increasing number of Catholics use mobile apps daily?

In this panel discussion, representatives from three dioceses who have experimented with mobile apps this year will share their experiences in creating and leveraging mobile technology to reach Catholics in their areas. The panel will include:

Sean Ater
Being Catholic App
Archdiocese of Cincinnati

Cindy Black
My Year of Faith App
Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend

Craig Berry
Rediscover: App
Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis

&

Patrick Leinen
Little iApps
Confession: A Roman Catholic App
eVotions Apps
My Year of Faith App
Rediscover App

Listen as each of these representatives share their stories and suggestions for creating your own apps as tools for Catholic evangelization, then ask questions about how you can make this a reality in your parish or diocese.
