 Evangelization through Communications

'The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communications, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ...may we respond to that challenge with fresh energy and imagination as we seek to share with others the beauty of God.' 


Message of Pope Francis for the 48th World Communications Day, January 24, 2014 (Feast Day, St. Francis de Sales, Patron Saintof Journalists).


The Communications Office is a ministry which serves the Archbishop, priests, parishes, offices and agencies within the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface. Through various media, this office focuses on effectively communicating the work of the Archdiocese to the parishes, the faithful and the general public. This is in keeping with its mission to evangelize and build a Christ-like community grounded in love, peace and reconciliation.
