CCC funds also support communications projects in developing areas of the world where the Church is growing but lacking in resources. The CCC supports the Cardinal Foley Scholarship program which provides funds for training Catholic Communicators from those areas of the world so that they have the tools necessary to spread the Gospel message in the 21st century.
When a Diocese collects funds for the CCC, 50% of the proceeds remain within those dioceses for communications projects and initiatives. Examples include website enhancements, studio equipment for audio and video recording, social media strategy and implementation, news and event coverage, and much more.
“The Gospel comes alive in our own day, whenever we accept the compelling witness of people whose lives have been changed by their encounter with Jesus. For two millennia, a chain of such encounters has communicated the attractiveness of the Christian adventure. The challenge that awaits us, then, is to communicate by encountering people, where they are and as they are.”
- Pope Francis, Message on 2021 World Communications Day
