Invite Others to Our Lenten Retweet

Using technology to spread the Good News, the 2013 Youth LeadershipTeam has put together reflections on the daily readings for Lent 2014. This group of high school youth from all over the diocese will be using the CYM Twitter feed (@cdowcym) to send anyone who wishes to receive these insights and inspiring questions. So spread the word and commit to retweeting this Lent.

Visit the CYM Twitter page to sign up. If you are already a Twitter user, spread the word by spreading the Tweets to all your friends and family. What a great way to lead up to this year's Pilgrimage and to make Lent 2014 more reflective than ever.

Type "Follow cdowcym" (without quotes) and text it 40404 and the daily reflections will come right to your phone (standard text message rates apply).
