Lord, let the good news of your marvelous deeds fall on every ear, and let all tongues rejoice in your wisdom, your compassion, your faithfulness, and your love.

Make me bold and let me share your Word with those you desire to reach. As my heart overflows with your love, speak through me.

Let me proclaim your glory and your majesty, and tell of the kindness you have shown your people.

This I ask, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Welcome to the Office for Communications

"The media can be used to proclaim the gospel or to reduce it to silence in human hearts. As media become ever more intertwined with people's daily lives, they influence how people understand the meaning of life itself." Dawn of a New Era Pontifical Council for Social Communications 1992

The Office for Communications helps directors of the diocesan agencies carry out their mission of communicating the Gospel. The director of the Office for Communications is the official media spokesperson for the Diocese and handles public relations for the bishop and the diocese. In addition, the Office serves as a resource for the priests and parish employees of the diocese, offering training on how to handle interviews and consultation on contact with journalists.

The Office for Communications is partially funded through The Annual Catholic Services Appeal
