In response to my post on Monday on The Pilot’s multimedia coverage of the permanent diaconate ordination in Boston, we received some more examples from the Florida Catholic. The paper has some similar multimedia packages covering priesthood ordinations in the Archdiocese of Miami and the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Both are worthy of attention.
As mentioned in a post by Barb Fraze from last month’s Catholic Media Convention in Toronto, it is becoming increasingly important that Catholic papers have Web sites, especially if they want to reach a younger audience. It is certainly refreshing to see some of these papers not only creating sites but also developing multimedia content for their sites.
