Blogged: It's here! Catholic Social Media Summit (CSMS) V3!!!

This coming September 13 - 14, YouthPinoy has organized the 3rd Catholic Social Media Summit (CSMS V3) and I am stoked to bits!!! 

It is actually the first CSMS I will be attending so please bear with me and my fan girl excitement. I just feel ecstatic every time Catholics come together to create something awesome for the glory of God!

This year's summit is themed "The Encounter", which will be advocating us, social media evangelists, to not only live online but to have true and meaningful social encounters offline as well. 

This year's theme was inspired by none other than the Pope himself:

”It is not enough to be passersby on the digital highways, simply “connected”; 
connections need to grow into true encounters.” 
- Pope Francis


This, I believe, is the first time the CSMS will happen outside Metro Manila and it will be held at the Pangasinan Training and Development Center, Provincial Capitol in Lingayen, Pangasinan. 

Who are invited?

All interested to attend the event are invited! 

According to their website, young professionals, students, catechists, educators, and priests will be there. But I would like to give special mention to lay missionaries, Catholic organizations' full-time workers, and Catholic bloggers (ahem) and journalists to go.




  A list of the featured speakers should excite you. The speakers (with their respective topics) of the event are:

Michael Angelo Lobrin - Topic: Beyond Jesus Posts

Archbishop Socrates Villegas - Topic: The Online Samaritan and his Digital Neighbors

Bernard Canaberal - Topic: Encounters: Authentic Relationships
