Five Things To Remember On Feb. 1

1. The perpetual debate in social media is quality vs. quantity. One Catholic media leaders said at the Vatican recently that a media blitz is the way to go if the Church wants to reach young people.

2. Around the country, the Catholic Church is celebrating Catholic Schools Week Jan. 27-Feb. 2. During the week, the USCCB blog will feature entries from people who reflect on how their lives were and are impacted by Catholic education. Today, Sister John Paul Myers, the principal of Frassati Catholic High School in Houston, explains how a new Catholic school can improve a community.

3. The annual Catholic Social Ministry Gathering is being held Feb. 10-13 in Washington. Presenters include Cardinal Seán O'Malley and Father James Martin, SJ. The gathering is an opportunity for people in ministry to connect with others in ministry and learn about ways to help those in need and advocate for them.

4. Sunday's Super Bowl features two head coaches who are also Catholic siblings - Jim and John Harbaugh. Can you imagine being their parents? The Catholic Review in Baltimore spoke to Jack and Jackie Harbaugh about what it will be like for them.

5. God loves you.
