Pope Chooses Family as Theme for World Communications Day

Pope Francis will highlight the beauty and value of the family in his message for World Communications Day. The day, which falls in January, will come after the synod of the family this month and an international gathering on the family in Philadelphia next year.

“Communicating the family: a privileged place of encounter with the gift of love” will be the theme of the Church’s celebration of World Communications Day, which most dioceses will mark on May 17, the Sunday before Pentecost. The Pope’s message for the day is expected to be released on January 24, the feast of St Francis de Sales, patron saint of journalists.
