*  LAUNCHING OF NEW SOCIAL MEDIA IN THE DIOCESE OF PENANG

Plans are underway to begin a new social media called “LiveOnline Penang Diocese” (LOPD) in the Diocese of Penang this year. Among the main objectives of setting up the new media is to provide live telecast of Eucharistic celebrations and other major diocesan events, especially those involving the Bishop of Penang. Other objectives of LOPD include making available online formation for the laity, as well, as a means for the various diocesan ministries and organisations to network, to communicate their vision-mission, and to promote their activities.

The Bishop of Penang, Rt. Rev. Sebastian Francis, will launch LOPD on 8 December 2013 at the conclusion of the 10.00am Eucharistic celebration at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, Penang. It is hoped that with the launching of LOPD, the Bishop will be able to better communicate, and be more directly “in touch” with Catholics in the Diocese. To assist him in this service, the Bishop has appointed Friar Pius Joseph, OFM. Cap, as Head of Media and Social Communications for the Diocese of Penang.
