App provides improved access to daily readings, prayers, saints’ bios, Catholic news, video, audio, live streaming from Salt + Light TV, and The Catholic Radio Network
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), has launched a newly revised version of its AMS USA app, previously named AMS Catholic Faith Deployed. The new and improved AMS USA app is now available for free download on Google play, the Apple App Store, or Windows Phone.
Designed for use on smart phones and portable devices anywhere in the world, AMS USA provides improved access to daily readings, general prayers and special prayers for those in the military, biographical information on saints, Catholic news, video, audio, live streaming from Salt + Light TV, and The Catholic Radio Network.
The app, first launched two years ago, was developed and funded in cooperation withMyCatholicVoice, an organization that supports the creation of Catholic new media. Dr. Mark Moitoza, AMS Vice-Chancellor for Evangelization, says the enhanced version will help practicing Catholics and religious instructors in the military stay in closer touch with fellow believers, other Catholic faith communities, and the Church at large:
“Connecting a global archdiocese on the move with over 300,000 young adults remains a daily challenge. The newly revised AMS USA app offers an effective way to bridge the gap by delivering solid Catholic content free of charge. Rather than bringing people, scattered around the world, to hear an expert at a symposium the archdiocese is now able to curate and generate relevant digital content and deliver it directly into the hands of Catholic young adults. The gift of live-streaming video from Salt and Light TV is a wonderful enhancement that will further connect active duty members to the Universal Church.”
The revised version of AMS USA can be downloaded here. Donations to the Archdiocese to support the ongoing projects bringing hope, faith, and Christ to Catholics in the U.S. Military may be made through the AMS USA app via a direct link to the AMS website.
