I just registered for the SQPN Catholic New Media Celebration (Boston, August 7), where I hope to renew my acquaintance with many active, evangelizing bloggers and podcasters. It helps that this date falls right between my annual retreat in late July and a new music recording schedule to begin August 10; I'll have time to give the junior sisters a presentation on our Founder AND participate in the CNMC (with no additional travel expenses; a real bonus!).
This will be the third New Media Celebration, and the third I've attended. Last year in San Antonio, I was the only nun in the whole assembly. This year that won't happen: The event is being held at the Archdioceesan office building in Braintree, just down I-95 from our Jamaica Plain publishing/mother house. (I'm hoping some of the attendees will also manage a visit to our place.) Plus, our Pauline relatives, the Sister Disciples of the Divine Master, take care of the chapel and bookstore at the chancery (which I haven't seen yet).
Are you coming (or wish you were)?
