Christ Our King Catholic Church Social Media Policy

The world of digital communication, with its almost limitless expressive capacity, makes us appreciate all the more Saint Paul’s exclamation: “Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). – Pope Benedict XVI, 44th World Communications Day message (2010).

Christ Our King Catholic Church is committed to following the Church’s teachings on responsible social media usage, outlined in Social Media Guidelines from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Office of Media Relations. These guidelines state: “Social media are the fastest growing form of communication in the United States, especially among youth and young adults. Our Church cannot ignore it, but at the same time we must engage social media in a manner that is safe, responsible, and civil” (USCCB. (n.d.). Social Media Guidelines. Retrieved from http://www.usccb.org/comm/social-media-guidelines.shtml).

Christ Our King Catholic Church is also committed to serving as an example to the greater community for responsible social media use by following best practices recommended by the USCCB and other trusted Catholic resources, and ensuring that all posts and comments are marked by Christian charity and respect for the truth.
