PRLog - Dec. 13, 2007 - Vision and Mission
Our Vision is to create a worldwide faith network of Catholics who are linked together in a spirit of mutual support and friendship. MyCatholicVillage is more than just an ordinary social networking site. It is the premier resource for Catholics to grow in their faith through Christ centered friendships with other Catholics.
Our members are essential to the unfolding of our Vision. They play an important part each day in developing a global Catholic Village. Our members get involved in our community by connecting with friends and making new ones, blogging, and participating in groups.
Our goal is to have communities of Catholics from all over the globe on our site. MyCatholicVillage provides the link that truly connects the Body of Christ together. This Body is made up of many members, and so we invite and encourage Catholics of all vocational status to join us (single, married, religious, and priests).
Clean and Safe
Our goal is to provide a safe, clean environment for all of our members. We avoid the presence of offensive material and content that plagues many secular websites. In order to ensure that it remains clean, we provide all of our members with the ability to report questionable material for removal from the site should this ever occur.
Our site is faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, as handed down to us through the Apostles. Our members are given the freedom to express themselves and their faith with others. It is our goal that the dialog that takes place on MyCatholicVillage will be a source of mutual evangelization and support through friend based relationships.

"We give thanks to God for the presence of these powerful media which, if used by believers with the genius of faith and in docility to the light of the Holy Spirit, can facilitate the communication of the Gospel and render the bonds of communion among ecclesial communities more effective."
"New technologies, in particular, create further opportunities for communication understood as a service to the pastoral government and organization of the different tasks of the Christian community. One clear example today is how the Internet not only provides resources for more information, but habituates persons to interactive communication."
"The Church is not only called upon to use the mass media to spread the Gospel but, today more than ever, to integrate the message of salvation into the new culture that these powerful means of communication create and amplify It tells us that the use of the techniques and the technologies of contemporary communications is an integral part of its mission in the third millennium."
