“Love, by its nature, is communication.”
Pope Francis, Message for 50th World Communications Day, 2016
Our Diocese will take up the annual collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) on May 20-21. This collection helps bring the Gospel message to the public square so that all can know the love of God. Pope Francis has reminded us that “communication has the power to build bridges, to enable encounter and inclusion, and thus to enrich society” (World Communications Day Message, 2016). Support of this collection helps to enrich society and to invite all to encounter the love of God.
For example, as people continue to access more and more information on mobile devices, there is an increased need to provide faith resources on these platforms as well. The CCC helps make the daily readings available as free podcasts to download and listen to on the go. In addition, the readings are also available in English and Spanish by email subscription. By supporting the CCC, people across the country are able to experience the Scriptures in a new way and are never far from the Word of God.
Remember that half of all the proceeds from this collection stay here in the Diocese of Greensburg to support our local communications efforts, including The Catholic Accent newspaper, diocesan website and other social media platforms.

Yours in Christ,
+ The Most Reverend Edward C. Malesic, JCL
