World Communications Day

Is next Sunday, 13 May. On this day, we take up the command of Jesus to preach the Good News of Christ to the whole world. We are asked to pray for all those who work in the field of communications and the media. A retiring collection will be taken for the work of the communications office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, which supports our bishops in their witness and engagement with current issues, and promotes the Gospel through digital, social, print and broadcast media. In his message for World Communications Day, Pope Francis calls for a ‘journalism of peace,’ which will oppose the spread of ‘fake news’ by a commitment to truth, dialogue and understanding.
