I was so blessed that this year's Catholic New Media Conference was held in Boston, my own backyard – although I splurged and stayed at the hotel, and even took a Duck Tour with the other VIP participants on Sunday.

The presenters were informative, eager to share their experiences and knowledge, and faithful followers of the Church – which translated into encouragement and inspiration for those blessed to be in attendance.


Here are some of my favorite #CNMC Tweets that will give you the “like I was there” feel:

It was the first time I didn’t feel guilty looking at (and using) my phone during a public event. It was actually expected and encouraged! #WICKEDAWESOME!
