This qualitative research paper proposes that the Catholic Church can maximize social media for evangelization and religious activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the social media platform can be used in the future, even after the pandemic, so that the Good News can reach more people. In the first part, we discuss the changes done by the Church in Her practices during the COVID-19 pandemic. Second, a discussion on evangelization is given so that an understanding of the concept will be achieved. Third, we highlight the need to maximize social media so that the Gospel message will be heard by more people. Thus, this paper emphasizes utilizing social media for a common good.
