Catholic Communication Campaign Spreading the Gospel Message at Home and Around the World

 
April 19, 2016
WASHINGTON—The Catholic Communication Campaign is an annual national collection to support evangelization through the internet, television, radio, and print publications. This collection will be taken up in many dioceses the weekend of May 7-8, 2016.

The Catholic Communication Campaign collection provided funds for unprecedented coverage of Pope Francis' visit to the United States and provides ongoing support for the 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."

Fifty percent of funds collected remain in the diocese to support local communications projects. The Catholic Communication Campaign also funds projects in developing nations where the local Church lacks resources to spread the Gospel message.

Shareable resources for the collection are available online. More information about the Catholic Communication Campaign is available at www.usccb.org/ccc.
