Church and Communication


Cardinal Timothy Dolan: "We need competent lay people to represent the Church"
Roma.- "The day of old, fat, balding bishops like me being the best spokespeople for the Church is long gone: now needs to have trained, competent lay people to represent them!". With a personal sense of irony, Cardinal Timothy Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, shared this belief when opening the IX Professional Seminar for Communications Offices (April, 28-30, 2014), promoted by the School of Church Communications of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- At the end of March, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission took action to quash the growing monopolization of local TV airwaves by just a handful of broadcasting conglomerates. It used to be that one company owned the CBS affiliate, another the NBC station, and so on down the line all the way to the independent, unaffiliated stations in a city.
