Catching Foxes

A Podcast Review

When I first became interested in podcasts I listened to The Nerdist, now known as ID10T with Chris Hardwick, religiously. He and his friends would casually interview celebrities who are closely associated with nerd culture (think scientists, superhero film stars and anyone in between). It was a podcast for those who were not fans of mainstream culture and were not embarrassed by it. That is what Catching Foxes is to the world of Catholic podcasts – they are who they are and not afraid if they are not seen as conventional which is probably why I found it so enjoyable!

New Normal

This is an interesting time we live in. Our worlds have been turned upside down. Since mid-March we have transitioned our homes into classrooms, offices, restaurants and so much more. One change that many parishes were not expecting was how to transition from worshiping at church to worshiping at home and keeping parishioners engaged.

We thought we’d share what we offer now as opposed to the very beginning!

Serving Others

Preface: It appears many people enjoyed our Living Life to the Fullest blog last week. So much so that we all decided it needed a part 2 because everyone had a suggestion as to what living life to the fullest meant to them. So here we go, the second part of Living Life to the Fullest! Enjoy!

We all see service as a way to help those around you. It also allows us to feel positive about how we are living our lives. Today’s blog is all about serving others and how it helps you live a fuller life. Just writing the beginning of the blog is giving me positive thoughts and vibes that I just know it is going to be great!

The Importance of Social Media Part 2

As you probably remember, last week we started the conversation as to why your parish should use social media. You can attract Millenials and iGens to your church, convert with RCIA, use it for events and to broadcast your weekly mass. That is just a small fraction of what you are able to do with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here are some successful events we have found using various social media sites!
