STA. ROSA City, Laguna,Sept. 16, 2015 – The much-awaited gathering of online missionaries in the country promises to be four times as big and fun as it explores new ways of bringing the Good News to unchurched netizens with months of preparation, relevant topics, and an impressive lineup of speakers.
“The fourth installment of the Catholic Social Media Summit [CSMSv4] is one event you should not miss! It is four times bigger and better,” boasted Chrixy Paguirigan, CSMSv4 program team head, in an interview.
From their website down to the smallest details in the program agenda, Paguirigan expressed pride over how CSMSv4 organizers are striving to bring the event to new heights, ensuring all aspects of the event are being attended to.
“The focuses of the summit are also as timely and important as they can get,” she said, adding that in forming their agenda, they have considered only what will be for the best of every person online.
From gaming, online marketing, crowdsourcing, content management, and mobile technology, Paguirigan explained CSMSv4 strives to cover all the cyberspace skills and know-hows needed to transform one into an effective online evangelizer.
Ultimate Power Source
Moreover, the CSMSv4 program team head only had words of praises for the people invited to speak at the event, noting the diversity of their backgrounds and fields of expertise, coming from different sectors and industries.
“The best and most awaited part I personally am giddy about is the keynote, “Connecting to the Ultimate Power Source,” to be given no less than by an official of the Vatican Radio, Sean Lovett.
Given the need to heed the call of online evangelization, she pointed out that the forthcoming summit will give special attention to the various ways available to the baptized which they can use to connect themselves and others to Jesus Christ, the “Unending and Unbounded Source.”
Themed “Plugged In,” CSMSv4 seeks to spread the message of Romans 15:16 that all may be one voice in glorifying God, and the homily of Pope Francis at the Manila Cathedral in January where he urged the creation of circles of integrity and networks of solidarity in society.
CSMSv4 is set to be held from Oct. 10 to Oct. 11 at the Sta. Rosa City Hall Auditorium, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
