FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDIA ADVISORY

ARLINGTON, TX (April 18, 2012) - Registration is now open for the 2012 Catholic New Media Conference - a festive and educational event for anyone involved in Catholic media.

All interested in Catholic communication, new media, and social media are invited, including young adults (18+), ministry leaders, and priests and religious, to whom Pope Benedict appealed in his 2010 World Communications Day message, to "become an ever more pastoral presence on the web."

If you are involved in Catholic media as a blogger, podcaster, writer, website developer, videographer, or work at the parish level maintaining your parish's social media channels, this is THE event of the year for learning and networking with others.

The 5th annual Catholic New Media Conference will be held at the Arlington Convention Center (Arlington, TX) on August 29-31, 2012. For the first time, the CNMC will be meeting in the same location as the Catholic Marketing Network trade show and the meeting of the Catholic Writers Guild.
