US Bishops Hosting a Facebook Pope Contest

WASHINGTON, D.C., OCT. 6, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Facebook users who “like” the profile page of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will get a chance to show off what they know about Benedict XVI and win a prize.

The USCCB is sponsoring “Pope Culture Week” on Facebook, starting next Monday, Oct. 11, and running through Friday, Oct. 15.

Each day, there will be a question about the life and teachings of the Pope. The first to provide the correct answer as a comment will receive a free copy of “Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on His Papacy.”

Mercy Sister Mary Ann Walsh, director of media relations for the USCCB and editor of the book, reflected: “We think this is a great opportunity to engage our Facebook fans while promoting literacy about the Pope by asking questions about his life.”
