Social media strikes again! This thing just might have legs after all.
From Project reader Rhoda Maddonni:
I really enjoyed reading your adventures in old "St. Bonnie's". I went to school there for 1st thru (1980-1988). I just started a facebook group page. I was wondering if I could use one of your pics for our profile, specifically the one showing the school name? Please come visit the page when you get a chance. I'm hoping we can get some great pics on here from former members.
Thanks in advance.

St. Bonaventure facebook group page:
In case you're counting, that's the third Facebook parish page that we're aware of, the first two being West Philadelphia's defunct St. Gregory and St. Agatha. If you're a fan of any of these three churches, check them out.
Are there any other social media outlets for churches? Let the Project know--we have infinite curiosity. And if your favorite parish doesn't have a page, create one, especially if it's still open. No need to wait until it closes to bring the parish together! If done right, it may even be the difference between closing and staying open.
