This is the Liturgy of the Hours for December 31. Your local date is .
Divine Office will be traveling to Dallas for the Catholic New Media Conference (CNMC), an annual event organized by the non-profit organization, SQPN. This will be the 3rd year in attendance for Divine Office while this year marks the 5th annual CNMC event to date. The Catholic New Media Conference is an event, which was started in support of bringing the networking, and learning opportunities that technology enables as a means for bringing Catholic news, and resources to the Catholic community. Those that attend the conference are a vast and notable collective, as members of the Catholic faith, who make it their mission to support, and deliver resources in the interest of Catholics everywhere. The event includes Catholic writers, bloggers, church organizers, ministries, news sources, publishers, software developers, parishes, charities, and other Catholics, and their organizations supporting this community.
This year will be a special occasion for Divine Office as our very own, Dane Falkner, founder and creator of DivineOffice.org, will be presenting in a new lecture being offered discussing the uses and the advantages of bringing Catholicism and technology together. Because this technology is what the Divine Office ministry was founded upon, the purpose of this event is a chance to learn and share with others what we hope to continue. More specifically, as times change the coming together in knowledge, prayer, worship, and devotion become increasingly important, and that the tools for doing so remain available to everyone. We have been blessed with this ability through the use of technology as a means to reach Catholics everywhere, to pray together, and be a resource. We want to continue our mission, which is why we are excited to be participating in this year’s, Catholic New Media Conference.
The rest of the Divine Office team would like to thank Dane for his knowledge in both faith and technology, and for presenting on behalf of Divine Office at this year’s conference. We hope you’ll join us in wishing him the best of luck as we support him at the Catholic New Media Conference (CNMC) of 2012.
