“Advancements in technology have made new kinds of human interactions possible. In fact, the question is no longer whether to engage with the digital world but how.” (Towards Full Presence – A pastoral reflection on engagement with social media.)


Many religious sisters are wondering how will they navigate the “digital highways,” and effectively communicate the Good News on social media.

This course is tailored for religious sisters who already maintain an active presence on social media, whether through their personal accounts or by managing accounts for their congregation, apostolate, etc.

In this course, participants will explore various methods for communicating in digital media. The lectures will address topics such as contemporary challenges in digital environment, communication planning, and fostering communion in divided societies.
