- About USCCB
If Jesus Christ were on earth today, how would he spread his message of salvation? Would he use television, radio, newspapers, text messages, billboards, DVDs, or even the Internet? Pope Benedict XVI, in his 43rd message for World Communication Day, said that "these technologies" are truly a gift to humanity and we must endeavour to ensure that the benefits they offer are put at the service of all human individuals and communities."
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops established the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) collection in 1979 to respond to the national and local communications needs of the Church. The collection is unique in that proceeds are split equally between each participating diocese and the national office. Dioceses use their share of the CCC collection to support local communications efforts such as televised Masses and diocesan newspapers. On the national level, CCC funds support the development and production of a wide range of media initiatives that are carried out by USCCB staff and grantee organizations. A portion of the CCC's national funds are also set aside for grants to aid Catholic communication efforts in developing nations.
This entire website, along with videos, podcasts and other media resources are made possible by the Catholic Communication Campaign. From RSS feeds of the Daily Readings from the New American Bible, to television specials seen on national networks and public service messages seen by millions of Americans, the Catholic Communication Campaign is how the Good News gets around!
