Announcement: AmP to join APP June 1st
On June 1st I will join the newly-formed American Principles Project (APP) as Communications Director. I have tremendous respect for its founder, Dr. Robert George of Princeton University, and I’m very excited about the people I will be working with day-to-day. Furthermore, I believe APP will give me a new and unique opportunity to do good, so much so that it is worth giving my focused energy.
My new employers have graciously allowed me to continue my blogging on these pages. At American Papist I will continue to provide breaking stories, clarify rumors, and spread awareness of the good things happening in the Catholic world online and offline. This mix of offerings has quickly propelled AmP into becoming one of the highest-visibility Catholic blogs in the world and I want it to continue flourishing.
My specific coverage of political and some social issues will transition over to the new American Principles Project (APP) blog, where I will benefit from better access to important trends and information. As a perfect example of these new opportunities offered by APP, I will be live-blogging a debate between Doug Kmiec and Robbie George at the National Press Club tomorrow. I will post details about that event next.
Over the next month I ask your patience as I make this transition. While it is true that I will have many things on my plate, my commitment to my readers, tipsters, and fellow Catholic bloggers is unflagging! With hard work and God’s grace, I hope that the good things begun here will continue to bear much fruit.
