Generation Nomad Launches First Magazine Issue of Digital Media Outreach Project
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington D.C. (August 11, 2012) - NOMAD, a Catholic digital lifestyle magazine written by and and for young adults, has launched its first issue which features articles on current topics facing youth around the world.
Contributing their unique perspectives on cultural issues, music, film, art, faith and stewardship, the writers of NOMAD will, in each issue, also feature a calendar of events, volunteer opportunity, book reviews and profiles of young men and women who are using their gifts to serve the Church around the world.
NOMAD Editor, Mary Claire Curtis writes, "Our generation is blessed with extraordinary talent, imagination, creativity and the technological tools to impact the world, but without direction and a faith foundation, their
journey will lack purpose. In his 1985 Apostolic Letter to the Youth, Dilecti Amici, Pope John Paul II spoke of youth as a time of questioning and 37 years later, we are still asking 'Who am I? What do I stand for?' It is challenging to break through the noise and chaos of society's many contradictions, but we are committed to following in the footsteps of the disciples, going forth as 'a voice crying out in the desert'."
The goal of NOMAD is to share the stories of young adults who have chosen to forge their own paths in life. The magazine's marketing campaign, 'Join the Revolution' is meant to encourage readers to inspire one another and
most importantly, to emulate Christ's love.
Nearly five years in the making, NOMAD magazine is a timely reflection of Pope Benedict's invitation to youth to answer the call of evangelization. In an official Vatican statement on July 31, the Pontiff shared his hope that "young people, called to follow Christ, may be willing to proclaim and bear witness to the Gospel to the ends of the earth.”
NOMAD Assistant Editor, Jackie Heider, emphasized "the project's reflection on the missionary focus of the Church to make disciples of all nations," and said that the outreach has adopted Pope Benedict's challenge, “If we allow the love of Christ to change our heart, then we can change the world," for the theme of their second issue set to release in October.
The magazine's website is currently in development and once completed, more information will be available at www.generationnomad.com. The first issue, themed 'Freedom Chasers' can be found at http://issuu.com/globalcatholic.
