USCCB Sponsors ‘Pope Culture’ Week on Facebook

October 6, 2010 By Public Affairs Office

WASHINGTON—The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is sponsoring Pope Culture Week on the USCCB page on the social networking site, Facebook (www.facebook.com/usccb).

Every day, starting Monday, October 11, and ending Friday, October 15, the USCCB will ask one question relating to the life and teachings of Pope Benedict XVI of the Facebook fans of the USCCB. The first person to provide the correct answer as a comment will receive a free copy of the book, Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on his Papacy, published by Sheed "& Ward and the USCCB.

“We think this is a great opportunity to engage our Facebook fans while promoting literacy about the pope by asking questions about his life,” said Mercy Sister Mary Ann Walsh, director of media relations for the USCCB and editor of the book.

To participate, a person must be registered as a user at www.facebook.com and must also "like" the USCCB's page.

Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on His Papacy is in bookstores and also available from online booksellers such as Amazon.com and directly from the USCCB (www.usccbpublishing.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=1475).
