2015 Catholic Communication Campaign
June 6, 2015 - June 7, 2015
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops established the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) collection in 1979 to respond to the national and local communications needs of the Church.
During the weekend of June 6 and 7, parishes in the Diocese of San Jose will take up this Collection, which supports projects throughout the world that evangelize through the use of media.
Half of the proceeds from this Collection stay here in the Diocese of San Jose to support our local communication efforts, such as The Valley Catholic diocesan newspaper and website, diocesan website and social media. The success of your generous contribution last year helped provide additional services and support to:
– Partner with the Office of Evangelization’s “The Light is On for You” Lenten initiative, including development of logo, VTA bus ads in Santa Clara County, and social media ads
– Introduction of official Diocesan Instagram channel (@diocesesanjose) to extend reach to audiences of Catholic faithful and faith-curious
– Graphic design services for all major Diocesan campaigns through the Diocese’s Office of Communications
– Design and development of select parish websites and ongoing training for parish webmasters
On the national level, CCC funds the development and production of a wide range of media initiatives that are carried out by USCCB staff and other grantee organizations. A portion of the CCC’s national funds are also set aside for grants to aid Catholic communication efforts in developing nations. The Catholic Communication Campaign is how the Good News gets around!
Please give generously to support this important work on June 6 and 7.
