A Comprehensive List of Social Media Priests Bishops, Archbishops, and Cardinals to Follow

by Evangelization, Vocation

Though many point out the evil and harm of social media, we all have the choice to use social media for our own personal gratification or to use it as a tool to bring glory to God. We can choose to use social media for good!

An easy way to do that is to carefully select who you follow and what type of content is displayed on your news feed. Following priests, nuns, and those who work in ministry will help you grow in holiness. Because it can be difficult to know who to follow, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of priests for you to follow!

Many of these priests have been suggested by our readers. We will be updating the list as more suggestions come in, so be sure to bookmark this post and check back often. We hope you will also share with us the names of priests that we may have missed. Help us out and also leave a link to each recommendation’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
