The Eucharistic Congress and the CNMC in the latest Georgia Bulletin

The latest Georgia Bulletin has a slew of articles on the Eucharistic Congress (June 20-21) and the first ever Catholic New Media Celebration. (links are to my posts on the two events.)

Here's a sample:

Faith-filled Congress-goers embrace the Living Bread.

Event draws Catholics who are evangelizing online.

And: Deaf Catholics taught about Benedict's encyclicals.
David Klinger, a member of Transfiguration Church in Marietta, wrote by e-mail following the Eucharistic Congress that the program gave him his first exposure to the word "encyclical" and its importance to the church. He said he also learned through Father St. Martin's presentations about the Mass cycles over the years and how their Scripture readings are chosen.

"Having the Deaf Track program encourages all deaf Catholic communities to participate in it to enhance their spiritual experience. Father Jeremy has done a superb job with his presentation," Klinger wrote.

In addition to the American Sign Language track, the Disabilities Ministry of the archdiocese provided large print schedules in Spanish and English and Braille schedules in Spanish and English, and assisted listening devices.
