A digital strategy for the U.S. Catholic church?

Thomas Shakely over at the Huffington Post lays out an interesting idea: The U.S. Catholic church, and its attendant parts, develops a coherent digital strategy.

"Catholics under 30, who embody the future of the Church, are true digital natives. They experience life in both the physical and digital space, with real world experiences like the Mass amplified across online profiles and communities, sparking curiosity and conversation among people who expect to be able to find answers (at least, orthodox clarity of information) as simply as they search for an address or pay a bill.

The digital life, in other words, impacts lines of thinking and personal formation. This leads to an inescapable conclusion: the Catholic Church is missing a tremendous opportunity."
