This post is in response to the suggestion of our blog leader, Joey.
Although many members of the clergy (Catholic and otherwise) are of a generation that is not all that accustomed to using the “New Media” (blogs, social media, etc.), there are exceptions to that rule. A notable exception is Cardinal Seán O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston, who has his own blog (updated weekly). But there are also more local clergy who are involved in sharing information over the internet.
I started my own blog, “Perpetual Learner“, back in July of 2010, at my first parish (St. Patrick’s) in Newburgh, NY, and I have continued here at Holy Family Parish on Cape Ann. I post the text and podcast the recordings of most of my homilies from Masses on weekdays and Sundays (usually that’s three or four homilies a week). If you open one of the podcast posts, there are also instructions for subscribing to my “homilycast” so you get the latest one automatically in iTunes or your favorite podcast client software. I blog on other topics from time to time (religious or not), and post some of my photographs, although now most of my non-religiously-themed posts appear here on GoodMorningGloucester instead. I also send out notifications of my blog posts via Twitter (@mehjg), Facebook, and sometimes Google+.
If you know of any other local clergy who are podcasting or blogging, please share the address with us! It would be interesting to know.
