Last week while browsing Pinterest I was invited to pin on several group boards by a site I hadn’t heard of before called Awestruck.tv. I browsed their Pinterest boards – THOUSANDS of pins on all kinds of great Catholic stuff. That got me curious about the site so I browsed on over and found a WordPress site that was claiming to be a “Your portal to the Catholic community”.
I went ahead and signed up for the site and found that it is a pretty active community of Catholics sharing their faith through groups such as Carmelites, devotions, pro-life, book club, gardening – really, a huge variety of over 400 groups.
The site also has over twenty sub-sites on topics including Pinterest, Catholics in various countries and the Catholic Feast which is more about saints and feast days.
I spoke with the founder of the site, Norm over Skype about the project. It turns out that this was originally a South African project done in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus and the bishops’ conference but has spread all over the world.
If you are looking for a place to socialize with other Catholics and don’t like the ads and privacy issues associated with Facebook, take a spin aroundAwestruck.tv.
