Eparchial Social Media Policy

All Eparchial personnel are advised to reflect carefully on Pope Francis’ guidance on the use of social media. In particular, the Holy Father has noted: “The speed with which information is communicated exceeds our capacity for reflection and judgment, and this does not make for more balanced and proper forms of expression. … We need, for example, to recover a certain sense of deliberateness and calm. This calls for time and the ability to be silent and to listen.”
