World Communications Day – 17th May

World Communications Day is celebrated on the 17th May, Ascension Sunday. The theme is Communicating the Family: A Privileged Place of Encounter with the Gift of Love. On this day we are encouraged to pray for communications professionals, especially those who work in the media.

Please support the second collection which provides the funding for the Catholic Communications Network.

The CCN provides support for the bishops of England and Wales and the Church more widely in promoting the Gospel through the media on current issues. The office is the central point for media enquiries and plays a key role in developing the public profile of the Church.

It is possible to donate online at:

Some commemorative prayer cards for this day have been printed and are available to take away.

Please support the CCN through your prayers and generosity.
