International Catholic Publishing Days


An International Meeting of Catholic Publishers was held in Rome from 26-29 June, organized by the Holy See’s Dicastery for Communication in collaboration with the National Office for Social Communications of the Italian Bishops’ Conference. Representatives of over 50 Catholic publishing houses from every corner of the globe took part in the event, confirming the will to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers so as to share experiences matured in different geographical contexts to face the challenges of the digital world.

The program included conferences, debates and work groups focused on the opportunity to rethink publishing strategies in the light of today’s changed multimedia consumption habits as well as the complexity of the economic context and the dynamics of the digital market.

Sr. Natalia Maccari of the FSP International Secretariat for the Apostolate (SIA), based in Rome, participated in the encounters as the representative of our FSP publishing apostolate.
