Brooklyn diocese targets young with new ad campaign

The Diocese of Brooklyn just launched an ad campaign to encourage people to come to return Mass. The ads focus on the theme, “Join us this Christmas,” and are directed a tthe smart phone-using young people who may need an extra invitation to come back to church.

"By coming among us as a man, God expresses His solidarity with humanity. Christmas is that time of year when we celebrate that great generosity of God by recommitting ourselves to one another,” said the Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn.

“New York is an exciting place to live. Yet for some it can also be lonely. We launched this campaign to remind our neighbors that they are not alone, that we are family,” said Monsignor Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn.

The campaign features a series of radio ads and posters displayed throught the diocese.

“These creative ads are our response to Pope Francis’ call for a Church of mercy and hope, ‘where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven’,” added Bishop DiMarzio.
