Why should you contribute to Wordnet Ministries?
Responding to the rapid change media and communication Wordnet began its own streaming channel called WordNet TV in 2018. The channel is available on all devices and on smart TV through Roku, Amazon TV, Android TV, Apple TV and Chromecast. Recently we have made the streaming through YouTube Live making it available to more and more audience. The channel is gaining viewership daily. It also airs Sunday Mass and during this Covid-19 lock down we have seen an increase in the number of viewers.
Besides the streaming channel Wordnet also publishes a daily reflection/meditation based on the liturgy of the day in English and Spanish through two Apps; iGod Today and Dios Habla. A team of dedicated and committed people provides to this reflection along with two of the SVD provinces from Colombia and Panama. The subscribers of this also have been steadily increasing. Wordnet has been also collaborating with other organizations and the Diocese of San Bernardino.
We see that we are surely trying to answer to the clarion call of Pope Francis when he invited everyone to have a positive presence in the ‘digital continent’. All the programs produced by Wordnet are on its YouTube channel, on Facebook and Twitter making a strong presence in the social media.
The channel highlights the missionary activities of the Church in various parts of the world mainly through the activities of the Divine Word missionaries. The program called ‘mission minute News’ brings this aspect of the church to the audience. It highlights current events in the local, national and international church and mission. It is a biweekly program receiving lot of appreciation. We have also begun live streaming of the Mass, adoration and benediction from the studio on Wednesdays.
Since WordNet TV is a 24/7 streaming channel we are always in need of new programming. We continue to do our regular interview based program highlighting the individual faith journey of the interviewee. We have also filmed a series of programs on marriage and family by Fr. Martin Padovani, SVD, programs by Grayson Warren Brown, Matthew Petrusek, PhD etc.
Your contribution will help us to continue airing of the streaming channel and for the production of new programs. The streaming is expensive as we have all the shows stored in Amazon cloud. We also need to use stream players from other providers that make it possible for the program to play on all devices. We have a team of people who monitor, maintain and update the streaming channel and the website.
We have been doing promotion and publicity of the channel and activities of Wordnet Productions in the Parishes and building a team of supporters called Wordnet Champions. We intend to continue the publicity and promotion.
