Official Programme for Vatican Blogger Meeting Announced

As one of the 150 bloggers invited by the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Communications to the first international meeting of Catholic bloggers, it is safe to say that there is a great deal of excitemnet on my own part and that of others attending the meeting on Monday next. There are a couple of alternative gatherings of bloggers on the following day - proper blognics, if you like - which are open to all. One of them takes place in an Irish pub - maybe that's the reason I should go to the alternative meet as well!

The official programme for the PCC meeting has been announced. It is to take place in the Sala Congressi, Palazzo Pius X, off the via della Conciliazione and will be formally opened by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the President of Pontifical Council for Communications. There are two panels of speakers, the first one moderated by Rocco Palmo and the second by Fr Antonio Spadaro SJ. (The second panel of contributors includes the director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr Federico Lombardi SJ). The event will be concluded by Archbishop Claudio Celli.

It will be a great opportunity to meet with other Catholic bloggers, make connections, and hopefully find ways for advancing the Gospel through this particular medium. Please keep all of us in your prayers.
