La Machi participated in the IX Professional Seminar for Communication Offices of the Church #churchcom14

Dear friends,

We traveled to Rome to be part of the IX Professional Seminar for the Communication Offices of the Church (#churchcom14) that took place from April 28 to 30 at the Pontificia Università della Santa Croce.

The arrival of Pope Francis has changed the way the Church presents itself to the world. The meetings with the Pope are getting closer and their messages, much more direct.

The international meeting was aimed at professionals in the field of communication of the Church and its main objective was to propose creative strategies to promote a cultural change, deepening in the characteristics and effects of this new form of communication.

It lasted 3 days and featured a large number of conferences and round tables. Among the speakers we could find the great names of the communication of the Church. The opening session was in charge of S.Em.R. Card. Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of New York, who spoke about the cultural challenges for communicators of the Church. For its part, the last day of the Seminar was attended by Prof. Joaquín Navarro-Valls, former Director of the Press Office of the Holy See, who lived in the first line for so many years, along with John Paul II, the challenges of communication that the Church faces.

We also had the immense opportunity to present La Machi and exchange experiences with the community of Catholic communicators that were present there. Thank you for joining us in this adventure!
