Fans of US bishops’ Facebook page can win Pope Benedict book in contest

.- Facebook users will have the opportunity to win a free copy of a book by Pope Benedict XVI if they become fans of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and answer a question about the Pope correctly during “Pope Culture Week.”

Each day from Monday Oct. 11 to Friday Oct. 15 the USCCB will ask its Facebook fans one question about the life and teachings of Pope Benedict. The first person to give the correct answer in a page comment will receive a free copy of “Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on his Papacy,” published by Sheed & Ward and the USCCB.

Sr. Mary Ann Walsh, director of media relations for the USCCB and editor of the book, said the USCCB thinks the contest is “a great opportunity to engage our Facebook fans while promoting literacy about the Pope.”

Participants must be registered users of Facebook who “like” the USCCB’s Facebook page at
