Remember to Support the Catholic Communication Campaign May 11-12

From the USCCB

April 23, 2013

WASHINGTON—Catholics nationwide can support Church communications through contributions the weekend of May 11-12 to the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) annual collection.

The second collection, taken up in most parishes in the United States May 11 and 12, supports national and international media projects. Fifty percent of the collection targets local media efforts, such as print publications, television and radio programs, and digital initiatives.

“The projects funded by the Catholic Communication Campaign allow the Church to spread the Gospel message in the digital environment,” said Bishop Joseph J. Tyson of Yakima, Washington, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ CCC subcommittee. “The bishops firmly believe in the importance of these Catholic media projects, which allow the Church to evangelize within the modern communications world.”

The campaign recently supported communication efforts surrounding the election of Pope Francis and an immersion program in the Middle East for Catholic journalists to learn firsthand the concerns of the Middle East’s Christian community.

Another funded project, in collaboration with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, is developing a digital safety guide for Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christian families to stay informed and responsible in their digital activities. The guide offers practical tips for protecting children and families, an overview of the challenges of becoming literate in digital communications, and theological foundations for responsible Internet browsing.
