I’ve been a long time fan of the Catholic Underground podcast pretty much since the first episode some years ago. Each week Fr. Ryan Humphries, Father Christ Decker, Joshua Leblanc, along with other hosts bring us a show on technology, the culture, and news of the Church.
The idea of having a conference on spreading the Gospel and it’s intersection with the digital continent was one that was discussed on the show over a period of time and it is now coming fully in fruition in Houston, Tx between 26-28 of August 2011. This convention has both exhibitors and various training sessions addressing both the tech and content sides of using technology in the spread of the Gospel. All at a very reasonable conference fee of $35. Even better Fr. John Zuhlsdorf will be the keynote speaker and others will be involved such as Matthew Warner. There is a particular liturgical dimension to this conference and Mass will be offered in both the Ordinary and Extra Ordinary Form along with Vespers.
I should have posted about this earlier, but I didn’t partly out of embarrassment. I would like nothing better than to be able to attend the conference myself to meet the crew of the Catholic Underground and of course the great Father Z and others who attend. So I feel rather bad about not being able to attend.
