I have signed the parish up for a Twitter account (it’s free), and I’ll tell you why. With this storm bearing down on us, I wanted a way (in the future, obviously) to communicate information such as a closure/cancellation to as many people as I could, as quickly as I could. So, if Father Tony decides to cancel the Masses at St. John & St. Christopher on Saturday, I could just tweet that fact and notify all followers. Another instance would be the cancellation of our Friday night Community meal due to the storm… Other than that, I really can’t think of a reason for “tweeting.” Perhaps you can?
So, our account name is @StJoeParish. There are many, many Saint Joseph Parishes, so I had to come up with an original name to validate the account.
So, you are invited to follow us on Twitter!
More to follow on this once I figure out how to use it…
