ITALY
Communications Week   versione testuale


Once again the FSPs and SSPs of Italy have banded together to celebrate the seventh annual Communications Week (13-20 May 2012)–an initiative organized to highlight the Pope’s Message for the occasion, which this year is entitled, Silence and Word: Path of Evangelization.
Numerous courses, seminars, conferences, debates, TV/radio programs, festivals, etc. have been programmed in various cities up and down the peninsula to give greater emphasis to the importance of WCD. A major event on the agenda is a Communications Festival in Caltanissetta, organized in collaboration with the diocese for14-27 May.
 
The organization committee released the following statement: “To retrace the long and rich history of Communications Week means to look back seven years to when World Communications Day celebrated its 40th birthday. The Day was almost unknown to the general public and consequently was celebrated by just a handful of communications workers. The Daughters of St. Paul and Society of St. Paul embraced the challenge to bring this important ecclesial and cultural event to the attention of more people by organizing a variety of activities designed to promote the values proposed each year by the Pope in his WCD Message. Today we can say that the Paulines have met their goal with resounding success.

By means of their book and media centers and their many apostolic activities, the FSPs and SSPs play a significant role in helping to unite all the dioceses of Italy on the virtual level to celebrate Communications Week throughout the country every year.”
