Catholic Innovators united in the name of the new evangelization

Global Catholic Innovators work together in the name of new evangelization. We are meeting in Rome annually, exchanging knowledge online and supporting Catholic Church in new media.

A Message From our Founder

Matt Koper is a catholic entrepreneur working on internet technologies for Catholics since 2005. He believes that Global Catholic Innovators may, and have to, improve evangelisation in new media.

Spiritual needs are pushed into the background by a commercial message.

The word of God is lost in the information noise created for commercial communication.

Spiritual message of Catholic Church is not sufficiently promoted on the Internet.

The Church about evangelization in new media

popefrancis

As I have frequently observed, if a choice has to be made between a bruised Church which goes out to the streets and a Church suffering from self-absorption, I certainly prefer the first.  Those ‘streets’ are the world where people live and where they can be reached, both effectively and affectively.  The digital highway is one of them, a street teeming with people who are often hurting, men and women looking for salvation or hope. By means of the internet, the Christian message can reach ‘to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).

Pope Francis, Communication at the Service of an Authentic Culture of Encounter. Message for the 48th World Communication Day.

vatican

Since announcing the Good News to people formed by a media culture requires taking carefully into account the special characteristics of the media themselves, the Church now needs to understand the Internet. This is necessary in order to communicate effectively with people—especially young people—who are steeped in the experience of this new technology, and also in order to use it well. (…) Church-related groups that have not yet taken steps to enter cyberspace are encouraged to look into the possibility of doing so at an early date.

Pontifical Council for Social Communications, The Church and Internet.

I dare to summon the whole Church bravely to cross this new threshold, to put out into the deep of the Net, so that now as in the past the great engagement of the Gospel and culture may show to the world ‘the glory of God in the face of Christ.

Pope John Paul II, Internet: A New Forum for Proclaiming the Gospel. Message for the 48th World Communication Day.

popebenedict

I would like then to invite Christians, confidently and with an informed and responsible creativity, to join the network of relationships which the digital era has made possible. This is not simply to satisfy the desire to be present, but because this network is an integral part of human life. The web is contributing to the development of new and more complex intellectual and spiritual horizons, new forms of shared awareness.

Pope Benedict XVI, Truth, Proclamation and Authenticity of Life in the Digital Age. Message for the 45th World Communication Day.
