High Tec Help

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

I was asked yesterday what I would want communications technology to do to make my job easier.
The answer is two fold. The first will solve itself over time. That is getting more people comfortable with computer and internet technology so that we can share documents, collaborate, share information etc. more easily.
The second is harder. A parish priest does not have a staff room. Time with colleagues is limited and many parochial appointments have minimal ministerial help. Can technology provide the fellowship usually available through the staff room?
Perhaps it can and much of Facebook, MSN is really about chatting. But perhaps I am a luddite, or an expat in the land of technology, because I miss my coffee with a real person 🙁
