Offices team up to offer digital safety workshop

MADISON – Join Bishop Kopacz, the Diocesan Protection of Children Office, the Office of Catholic Schools and the Department of Faith Formation for a one-day internet safety workshop on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at St. Joseph High School.
In the ever-changing world of technology, education is important to us as good Catholics to be respectable and appropriate users of digital and social media. The workshop attendees include pastors, DRE/CRE’s, youth ministers, teachers, principals, lay ecclesial ministers, parents and catechists.  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) catechetical theme for the year is, “Safeguarding the Dignity of all Human Persons.”  What a better place to start than the internet.
The keynote speaker is Paul Sanfrancesco of Philadelphia, Pa. Sanfrancesco has a personal style and strong commitment to faith formation.  He is presently director of technology for the Owen J. Roberts School District in Pottstown, Pa. In addition to his keynote, the agenda will include a speaker from the State of Mississippi Attorney General Cybercrime Unit.
There is no registration fee or form. Send an email or call Annette Stevenson, 601-960-8470, to let her know how many people from your parish will attend. Lunch will be provided.
