"With the advent of computer telecommunications and what are known as computer participation systems, the Church is offered further means for fulfilling her mission. Methods of facilitating communication and dialogue among her own members can strengthen the bonds of unity between them. Immediate access to information makes it possible for her to deepen her dialogue with the contemporary world."

-- Pope John Paul II, World Communications Day, May 27, 1989

CATHOLIC INTERNET MAILING LISTS


Electronic mailing lists are automatic computer programs which send a letter or other communication to thousands of E-Mail addresses at a single time. These are most often used to send free newsletters, known as "Mailing Lists". One of the nicest features of these lists is that most allow you to submit your own material to be sent out to the list as a whole, usually with approval of the maintainer of the list. To add your name to any of the lists below, you need to send an E-mail message to the computer which sends out the list. You will give it a command to add your E-mail address to the list. Your message will look like this: SUBSCRIBE Name-of-List Your-Name For example, to subscribe to the Worldwide Marriage Encounter List, you would E-mail this message: SUBSCRIBE WME-L Your-Full-Name To this address: listserv@american.edu If you wish to stop receiving messages from a particular list, simply send the following message to the same E-mail address: UNSUBSCRIBE Name-of-List Your-Full-Name Catholic Mailing Lists: 1) While not an exhaustive list, the following represent the main body of Catholic lists. 2) "CIN" refers to the Catholic Information Network, as described in Chapter 13 3) Inclusion in this Internet directory does not imply an endorsement of list content or any material contained therein.
