In Fall 2012, the Vatican will launch a major global evangelization initiative for the digital world.
Called aleteia – Seekers of the Truth!, the project has been developed by the Foundation for Evangelization in the Media, under the patronage of both thePontifical Council for Social Communications and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.
A collaborative platform, aleteia is an effort to reach millions—especially youth—by transmitting the Faith on the information superhighway. The organization intends to become the premier Christian social media network on the web, by gathering together partners, media and individuals (members, contributors and experts) who will share in the large evangelization outreach both on-line and in the world. To reach the greatest number of people, aletia’s content will be published in six languages.
