The Church encourages those in ministry to communicate via the Internet. The archdiocesan Digital Office serves its various ministries, taking these words of Pope Francis to heart: "Let us boldly become citizens of the digital world” (Pope Francis, Communication at the Service of an Authentic Culture of Encounter, World Communications Day 2014, Vatican). Engaging in electronic communications is indeed an important aspect of outreach for our faith communities, but it requires diligence, oversight, and proper safeguards. Location leadership should continually strive to improve communications with parish and school communities. Locations should adhere to the following guidelines as they consider and embark on improvements in communications with the people of God.
