The Second Vatican Council in Rome in its decree on communications (Inter Mirifica) said that "the Church believes that its task involves employing the means of social communication to announce the good news of salvation.” This blog is part of that process by the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to communicate that same good news about Jesus Christ.

A&B Young People prepare to spread the News about the Papal Visit
Three Young People, Catherine, Bernadeta and Christopher who will be leaders for the World Youth Day in Madrid in 2011 are already getting in on the act by working with the Diocese and Bishops' Conference to spread the news on-line about the Papal Visit in September and the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
At a training day in London with Bishop John Arnold and TV presenter Julie Etchingham they learnt about the nitty gritty of using the media including both the challenges and the opportunities.
We hope they will be hope and going soon doing stuff in the area covered by A&B, Surrey, East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. Good luck!
