Lizzie Reezay 

Catholics@Work Season Finale, May 14th
A 24-year-old Convert With 35,000,000 Video Views
And She Is Reaching the Next Generations

Nine years ago Lizzie Reezay, was a fully-involved Church of Christ student; her parents were foreign missionaries. At 15, Lizzie Reezay started a YouTube channel. Today it has 200,000 subscribers and 35 million views, a site that is deep into both young adult life as well as theology and Christian culture.
Then just a year ago Lizzie became a Catholic at Easter!

Lizzie will be the Catholics@Work speaker on May 14th in an evening program starting at 7 pm at St. Isidore Church in Danville. She is welcomed by teenagers and the twenties group. She an eye-opener for older Catholics who want the Church to reach and engage younger people.

Clearly, this 24-year-old uses social media to talk about her faith. She has arrived into the lives of thousands of young people who search for a meaning in life that is deeper than what current culture offers.

YouTube is dramatically different from newspapers, tv news, and Sunday homilies. It is a prime resource for vast numbers of teens and 20s and 30s who are casual, free-flowing, chatty, interactive and tech incubated.

Lizzie is open, candid, casual, and very tuned in to younger generations. She talks about topics as diverse as theology, relationships, Christian culture, and (her own) bipolar disorder. She has made over 400 videos to date.

"This will be an energetic, compelling program deep with insights into young people and what it takes to reach them with the word of God. Don’t miss it!", comments David Manion, President of Catholics@Work.
