Hi! My name is Angela Sealana. (I used to be Angela Santana.)
I’m a twenty-something Texan bride. My days are spent working professionally in Catholic evangelization, and my nights are sometimes spent in nerdy ‘new media’ ventures.
What can I say? I love my Catholic faith. I’d love for more people to know Jesus- Way, Truth and Life – as best they possibly can.
Why you can ‘take my word for it’

- The Catholic Church needs to become, once again, a driving force behind innovation in communication.
- The Catholic Church needs to excel in translating Her message to the world in contemporary new media language.
- Catholic ministries and parishes deserve professional-quality media products as much as Fortune 500 companies deserve them.
- Catholics need to engage new media with an approach rooted in Scripture, Tradition, and Magisterial teaching.
