Dear Parishioners,

As you know, I am an advocate for technology, new media, and the like. As such, I have been
following the papal letters for World Communications Day which is officially commemorated each Summer. This year, it falls on June 1st. The papal message for that celebration is released months prior on the memorial of St. Francis de Sales (Jan. 24), the patron of the Catholic press and journalists. So, last week, Pope Francis released his message for the 48th World Communications Day. Instead of summarizing it, I prefer to let you read it for yourself. So, below are links where you can go to read his message in its entirety:

Message - 48th World Communications Day (English)
