InFormation Bulletins - InFormation 2022 No.1 Spring

"The eight individuals who contribute to the collection present their stories humbly and honestly. Readers will find their own story reflected in the joys and struggles the authors describe from their own lives. One sister speaks of her family’s dysfunction, another of divorce, one of moving around as a child, another of school bullies. One speaks of a time where she experienced depression, while another talks of loving a boyfriend and choosing atheism with him. Each one presents steps on the path that led her to her calling as a sister."

We live in an increasingly wireless world connected by screens: smart phones, tablets, laptops, TVs, to name a few. There is a potential to be connected to someone at every moment of the day on almost every place on earth. This webinar will address some of the "hidden costs" of connected living, in particular: healthy companionship, creativity and contemplation. This reality, sooner or later, surfaces for us personally and in ministry, but particularly in initial and lifelong formation settings. We will explore ways to navigate and manage the blessing of this technology, as well as what can become an affliction and a hindrance to what and who we hope to be.

The impact of living in a digital world which is “always on” 24/7 is felt in all walks of life: consecrated life no less than the others! The questions many of us are asking revolve around how to authentically respond to the call and charism of our Congregations’ ministries, which often require the use and knowledge of social media, welcome new members, many of whom do not remember a time without 24/7 availability to social media, and encourage appropriate use of social media for all members, while striving to faithfully and realistically live a communal life together that implies interconnectedness and intentional, healthy, adult relationships. In this webinar, Sister Sue Pontz, SS.C.M., shares her insights concerning some of the topics around which Congregations need to focus conversations in order to address these key issues regarding the appropriate use of social media today.
