World Communications Day takes place this year on Sunday 17 May 2015, the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord. On this day, Catholics are asked to reflect on the necessity of fulfilling the command of Jesus to preach the Good News of the Gospel to the whole world. 

The Catholic Communications Network, the media office of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, seeks to be of service both to the Church and wider society in offering professional channels of communication.
