Social Media Release
The Diocese of Fort Worth utilizes today’s technology in a positive way to reach out to the youth of the Diocese, including Facebook email, and other social media. We may remove any content deemed inappropriate. All communications with any youth through social media programs by anyone representing the Diocese may be made available to any parent upon request. If you do not allow your son/daughter to text, Facebook, or use other social media, there will be no expectation that they do so in order to participate in certain youth ministry events. However, the Diocese cannot guarantee that photos, videos or other communications of your son/daughter from diocesan and/or parish events will not be uploaded to a social media site.
To the best of my ability, everything I have stated here is true and accurately reflects my wishes.
