Support the Catholic Communication Campaign!
We are all called to share our faith, but how should we do so? If we follow the example of Pope Francis, one way will be through new media like Twitter, blogging, and web videos.
With the Vatican, our Diocese, and many parishes active online through websites and social media, spreading our faith on the “new frontier” of the internet (as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI called it) is easier than ever.
The Catholic Communication Campaign funds these efforts, including the USCCB For Your Marriage campaign and coverage of important events, like last year’s papal election of Pope Francis. Half of all donations collected in Phoenix stay in Phoenix to support outreach through radio, print, TV, web, and social media outlets.
The message for this year’s 48th World Day for Communications emphasizes the importance of human relationships within social social networks. Pope Francis reminds us that “communication is ultimately a human rather than a technological achievement.” When we join in these networks as authentic witnesses of our Christian faith, we bring the light of Christ to others.
The Catholic Communication Campaign helps us to grow in faith, worship, and witness. Please be generous in the collection, which will take place in most parishes the weekend of May 31 - June 1, 2014.
