In his message for the 49th World Day for Communications...(2015), Pope Francis calls us to recognize that through communication, "we experience gratitude and joy," and that "relating our experiences means realizing that our lives are bound together as a single reality, that our voices are many, and that each is unique."
The Catholic Communication Campaign helps us to grow in faith, worship, and witness
Spreading the Gospel Message at Home and Around the World
The Catholic Communication Campaign is an annual national collection to support evangelization through the internet, television, radio, and print publications. This annual collection is taken up in the Diocese of Providence the second weekend in June.
What your donation supports locally in Rhode Island
Fifty percent of funds collected for the annual Catholic Communication Campaign remain in our diocese to support local communications projects - including this diocesan website, local Catholic television programming, radio, the diocesan app, diocesan e-Newsletter, social media, video presence on YouTube, and much more. Learn more.
What your donantion supports nationally
The Catholic Communication Campaign collection provided funds for unprecedented coverage of Pope Francis' visit to the United States and provides ongoing support for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website and Catholic News Service. Funds from this collection have also been used for family and ministry projects like For Your Marriage, Por tu Matrimonio, audio podcasts of daily Scripture readings and myUSCCB.
"Without help from the Catholic Communication Campaign, the coverage of Pope Francis' visit to the United States would not have been possible," said Bishop Joseph J. Tyson of Yakima, Washington, chairman of the Committee on Communications' Subcommittee on the Catholic Communication Campaign. "Through your generosity, the Gospel message has been lifted up in the media and conversations of people across the country and world."
What your donation supports internationally
The Catholic Communication Campaign also funds projects in developing nations where the local Church lacks resources to spread the Gospel message.
