This workshop will explore how those ministering to young adults can use social media and the web to attract interest and promote spiritual events for those unconnected to a church or faith tradition.

His resources and audio meditations have been used by schools, universities, parishes, and spiritual directors around the world.
Sarah Otto has a Masters in Divinity and works in the same Jesuit parish as Andy. Passionate about justice she has spent time in Central America and has volunteered in prison and hospital ministry. As a new mon, Sarah is particularly enthusiastic about ministering to women and families, but continues to enjoy helping people discern how to live a faith that does justice.
On Thursday evening 25th Oct they will present to young adults (churched and unchurched ) their experiences of spirituality, then on the following Friday morning they will give to the staff of Campion, and to others involved in the ministry of spirituality, a session on Ignatian spirituality in the 21st century e.g. how to appeal to the unchurched, design retreats, go on-line etc.
