Think you don’t have time to particpate in this Holy Week? Think again. On this Good Friday there is a priest who will tweet the Stations of the Cross and you can follow him as he does. Father Paddy Byrne is a firm believer in using social media to reach out to the community and help them connect with the church . He told a newspaper , “People don’t have to come into church but the churches have to go out to them and social media is a good way of doing that.”

If you want to follow Father Byrne this Easter you can do so at @frpaddybyrne. I am going to give it a try.
