Please pray for all communicators on World Communications Day, Sunday 16 May, and please give generously to the second collection.

The Pope's message for the 55th World Communications Day follows the theme “Come and See” (Jn 1:46).

The theme echoes the words of the Apostle Philip, recognising that authentic communication leads to “encountering people as and where they are”.

On this day, Catholics are encouraged to pray for all those professionals who work in Communications.

And particularly for those who are responsible for communicating on behalf of the Catholic Church in this country.

The communications office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) supports the bishops, in their witness and engagement with current issues, and the Church more widely in promoting the Gospel through digital, social, print and broadcast media.

The office is the central point for media enquiries and is a key resource for national and international media professionals. It also plays an important role in developing the public profile of the Church through word and image.
