Priests for Life Hires Additional Social Media Developer to Take Online Presence to New Levels

Priests for Life

May 20, 2018
   
 

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today a new phase of the social media growth of the Priests for Life Family of Ministries. “We are proud to welcome on our staff a new colleague who will bring to new heights our social media outreach. Robert Collins will serve on our team full-time, working closely with our Youth Outreach Director, Bryan Kemper, who oversees our social media outreach, and with our entire social media team. Rob has a proven track record in social media, including through his very successful Facebook page “Catholicity.” We look forward to significant new growth on our Priests for Life platforms.”

 

Priests for Life has already made a significant mark in social media, with dozens of different platforms on multiple apps, which can all be seen at www.ProLifeSocialMedia.com. Because Priests for Life is a family of ministries, incorporating works like Rachel’s Vineyard, Silent No More, the work of Evangelist Alveda King, and more, we network people on social media through each of these specific efforts.

Moreover, Priests for Life, through its work serving the other leaders of the pro-life movement, has assisted many organizations to develop their social media presence, and has facilitated joint action among pro-life groups to increase their effectiveness.

“This is the beginning of a new chapter of our work,” Fr. Frank explained. “Pro-choice commentators like Robin Marty have already publicly acknowledged that the pro-life side does a better job at mobilizing people on social media. Now, that trend will accelerate even more.”

Rob, on joining Priests for Life this week, wrote the following message:

Hello! My Name is Robert Collins, and I am very excited to be coming on board with Priests for Life as the Social Media Manager.  I’d like to share a little about myself, my past, and my passion. I was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, but have the rare privilege to have dual citizenship, as my father was an American citizen when I was born. I feel like James Bond with two passports.

After graduating from high school, I spent three years discerning a vocation to become a Roman Catholic Priest at the Seminary of Christ the King in Mission, British Columbia, Canada. This time was very pivotal for me, as this formative Benedictine education I received would become the core of my adult life. In the seminary, I started a seminarian pro-life prayer group, and at a conference for priests, deacons and seminarians in Steubenville, Ohio, I ran into Fr. Frank Pavone. His passion and his words changed my life. From then on, I knew that wherever life took me, I would do whatever I could to end abortion and the culture of death.

After discerning that God was not calling me to the priesthood, I met and married my beautiful wife Heather. We have two amazing little girls, Mary Faustina (11) and Gianna Maria (9). My family is very active in our faith and devoted to the pro-life cause. We have done many sidewalk prayers at abortion mills as a family and have a daily social media ministry dedicated to promoting pro-life. My wife is a prolife artist and a devoted homeschooling mother.

I have been working with social media management for over a decade and personally reach over 50 million people on my various social media platforms. I have run hundreds of campaigns and multi-platform strategies in both corporate and ecclesial circles. For some time, I have been working with Fr. Frank Pavone and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato on my social media platforms, which they post regularly on.  I am now honored to be able to do this full time with Priests for Life and have the opportunity to bring their prolife social media to the next level, and beyond. My goals for Priests for Life are HUGE! I embark in this position with a drive and determination that will promote the culture of life and touch millions of people, bringing the Priests for Life message to the masses.
