Knight leads Safe Social Media Discussion

Will Figueroa a young, experienced technology expert was invited by the All Saints iPray Youth Group to speak at their recent meeting on Thursday, May 2nd. Will is a member of the Knights of Columbus, St. John Neumann Council at All Saints who provided key suggestions on safely using social media, tips to secure your devices and ideas the teenagers could share with their parents. He attempted to expand the view of the teenagers by detailing how others can see your information in online interactions, how digital images never go away and effective ways to prevent "identity theft" with technology usage.
Prior to the tech talk, Will spent time stressing the importance of faith in his life and how his own experiences with his parish youth group in his teen years helped him develop into the husband, father and Catholic adult he is today.
The evening was wrapped up with an extended Q&A session with Will and the teenagers, supplemented by pizza provided by the council.
The talk is part of the pastor of All Saints, Father Liam Quinn, plan to offer the parish community opportunities to learn from others and how your Catholic faith can be integrated into your professional life.
