Vatican invites bloggers to May 2 conference

Catholic World News - April 08, 2011

The Vatican is organizing a May 2 conference for Catholic bloggers, sponsored by the Pontifical Councils for Culture and for Social Communications.

The conference, held in Rome on the day after the beatification of Pope John Paul II, will include morning and afternoon sessions. In the morning the speakers will be 5 active bloggers, chosen to represent 5 language groups: Italian, English, Spanish, French, and Polish. (Simultaneous translations will be provided.) In the afternoon, Vatican officials will offer their reflections on blogging.

The Vatican officials participating in the day’s activities will include Cardinals Gianfranco Ravasi and Claudio Celli—the presidents, respectively, of the Pontifical Councils for Culture and for Social Communications—and Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, the director of the Vatican press office.

    I am wondering how they define "Catholic" bloggers.
