Catholic Communication Campaign collection aids spreading the Good News

Communicating the truth of the Catholic faith is critical to the Church’s mission of spreading the Gospel.

And Catholics in the Omaha archdiocese have an opportunity to support that mission through a special collection during weekend Masses May 28 and 29.

The annual Catholic Communication Campaign collection supports media outreach through websites, social networks, television, radio and print media locally, nationally and internationally.

Half of all donations will stay in the Omaha archdiocese to assist the archbishop in advancing his pastoral vision for the archdiocese and aids diocesan departments and related apostolates in dealing with issues of communication, internally and externally, through tools such as the archdiocesan website, Catholic Voice website, social media and other communication projects.

The other half supports projects throughout the United States and in developing countries where the Church is growing but lacks resources.

We’re in the middle of the biggest communications shift since the advent of the printing press,” said Deacon Tim McNeil, chancellor and director of communication for the archdiocese.

“Now more than ever, the Catholic Church relies on various forms of print and digital media to share the joy of the Gospel and inspire faithful action,” he said. “The collection assists global and local communications efforts to harness modern-day tools to reach out, teach, convert and build community.”

The Catholic Communication Campaign is sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
