LIM hosts author of 'Googling God' for lecture and young adult day of reflection

Loyola press release - March 22, 2010

The Loyola Institute for Ministry will host Mike Hayes, former editor of BustedHalo.com, a ministry of the Paulist Fathers, and author of “Googling God: The Religious Landscape of People in their 20s and 30s,” on March 26 and 27 for a lecture and day of reflection.

Hayes will deliver a free public presentation, "Googling God: Ministry for and With Young Adults," on Friday, March 26, at 7 p.m., at Loyola University New Orleans in the Danna Student Center Audubon Room. On Saturday, March 27, Hayes will lead a day of reflection for young adults and those who minister with and to them from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., also in the Audubon Room. The day of reflection is $25 and includes continental breakfast and lunch.

Hayes, who is an expert on the implications of technology and social networking for ministry, will concentrate on the challenges and possibilities new media pose to young adults and those who want to engage them in active participation in their faith communities.

Housed in the College of Social Sciences, LIM has operated a successful ministry education program that is both Catholic and ecumenical. It has pioneered distance education through its unique extension model in the United States and abroad since 1983 and is one of the largest ministry formation programs in the country with nearly 3,000 graduates.
