Perspectives Daily - Feb 6 2017: Niagara Catholic Chaplaincy Leaders Visit Salt + Light TV

February 6, 2017
In today's episode, look at a new papal first! Pope Francis recorded a video message that was shown to tens of thousands of fans on the jumbo-tron during Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons yesterday. In this message played on a big screen before the game at the NRG Stadium in Houston, the Pope, expressed hope that the Super Bowl provides “a sign of peace, friendship and solidarity for the world.”
This video went viral on social media and if you missed it, we have it right here. Have a look
Last Friday, we at Salt + Light had the great pleasure of welcoming the Niagara Catholic Chaplaincy leaders to our office and studios for a professional development and workshop day.
The day started with morning prayer and a short history of Salt + Light by Fr. Thomas Rosica followed by a series of workshops and sessions on Communicating the Faith Historically and The S+L Universe led by Deacon Pedro and our Technical Director Javier Capella.
The Chaplaincy Leaders had a unique opportunity to sit through a LIVE audience taping of our flagship show Witness, featuring a senior director of Ancestry.Com - Quintin Atkinson which was followed by a tour of our new studios.
After a few more sessions on Pope Francis, Social Media  and World Youth Day, the Chaplaincy Leaders had an opportunity to fully participate in the Salt + Light experience by appearing on camera
Check out what some of them had to say.
We want to thank Niagara Catholic Chaplaincy leaders for spending the day with us. It was certainly a great day for all of us
That's it for Perspectives Daily today!
