Hinsdale, IL (PRWEB) October 20, 2007
Catholici Sumus, a non-profit Catholic organization, announced today the launch of a valuable tool in the new and rapidly evolving Catholic evangelization, http://www.LoveToBeCatholic.com. LoveToBeCatholic is a unique user generated video website where Catholics can celebrate, worship, learn, and evangelize the Catholic Faith.
- http://www.LoveToBeCatholic.com enables users to upload, watch, and comment on user generated Catholic videos. Videos can be shared privately with friends/family or publicly with just about anyone.
- Unlike other video web sites, content is monitored to assure that videos reflect true Catholic teaching. The goal is to provide a safe and entertaining place for people to access Catholic content on demand, 24/7.
- Users can find, join and create groups to connect with others in their parish, school or Catholic organization.
- LoveToBeCatholic is run by Catholici Sumus, a non-profit organization whose mission is to utilize new media and the Internet to help evangelize the Catholic faith.
Says Thomas Hall, founder of LoveToBeCatholic: "Catholics stumble upon a lot of poor theology and damaging things on popular video web sites like YouTube. People will find http://www.LoveToBeCatholic.com to be fun and unique. They can also be confident that videos will reflect true Catholic teaching. We aim to make LoveToBeCatholic.com the go to source for Catholic video clips. To that end, we want to encourage people to sign up and upload videos. The more that people do so, the more valuable the site will be as a tool for evangelization."
LoveToBeCatholic is run by Catholici Sumus, a non-profit organization whose mission is to utilize new media and the Internet to help evangelize the Catholic faith. The group aims to be innovative in ways to reach out to Catholics worldwide and help achieve a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
