Photos speak volumes

In electronic communications--emails, blogs, Facebook--images are very important.

Try not to use a lot of words in your communications. A picture really does speak a thousand words! Your communications should be colorful and reflect the personality of your congregation, your charism, and the joy of being a sister, brother, or priest. Complex ideas can be effectively conveyed in a single still image. Imagine the impact of a photo of a sister deep in prayer, a brother lovingly on the streets with people who are poor, or a priest soulfully celebrating a liturgy.

--Adapted from "25 ways to communicate your vocation message," by Debbi Della Porta, HORIZON, Fall 2013.
