Getting the word out over the internet

4/15/2013

twitterIt was a busy month leading up to Easter for Family Theater Productions. The mission was actively building its base on social media sites (see story below) and promoting Father Peyton’s mission through a series of online videos. As FTP’s Facebook and Twitter presence continues to grow, so does its visibility with viral videos.

A beautiful Easter video celebrating Christ’s Resurrection was created by the talented staff at Family Theater and shown over YouTube. It blended striking images of people around the world rejoicing to the Easter message of “He is Risen!” The pictures brought to mind Father Peyton’s famous slogan: “A World at Prayer is A World at Peace.”

Between them, Fathers Willy and David presided over six Masses on Easter Sunday to more than 5,900 people at St. Monica Parish, Santa Monica, California. The parish has over 9,000 families but also has an active media ministry reaching out to people beyond Southern California.

National Director Father Willy Raymond, was part of a live streaming video on the St. Monica website: http://new.livestream.com/stmonica90403/easter/videos/15192443.

Father David Guffey, CSC, Head of Production, celebrated Mass on St. Patrick’s Day which was streamed live on March at http://new.livestream.com/stmonica90403/sunday530/videos/14133039.

Father David was interviewed along with Dan Houze, St. Monica technical leader, at National Association of Broadcasters Convention by Teredek on the parish’s use of live streaming technology. http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/31169869/highlight/341239
