Please be generous in supporting the second collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign, to be held in most diocesan parishes the weekend of May 27 and 28.
The campaign works to bring the message of the Gospel into the public square, a task that is often challenging.
This campaign is connecting people with Christ through the print media, the internet, television and radio. Fifty percent of the funds we collect remains in the Diocese of Oakland to support local communications projects. The other 50 percent funds national communications efforts as well as projects in developing countries.
As Pope Francis reminded us in his World Communications Day Message, 2016, "If our hearts and actions are inspired by charity, by divine love, then our communication will be touched by God's own power."
Here in the Oakland diocese, these funds support websites and social media for the diocese and the cathedral, as well as The Catholic Voice and El Heraldo Católico newspapers and websites. We are active on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. The diocesan Facebook account has more than 16,000 followers and is an important channel for us to share news and events immediately. More than 225,000 people see each issue of The Catholic Voice — about half the registered parishioners in the diocese.
Your support of this collection helps to enrich society and to invite all to encounter the love of God.
Support the collection and connect with Christ.
— Staff and the USCCB
