Spreading the ‘Good News’ of the Diocese
‘Good News Stories’ from the Catholic homes, schools, parishes and charities which together make up our Diocese are promoted throughout the year via the diocesan website’s News Pages. Since the website’s launch in March 2019, the site has received (depending on the time of year) between 8,000 and 17,000 views each month by new and returning visitors both from within the Diocese and across the Universal Church.
News and features of wider appeal are also selectively targeted to Catholic, national, regional and local press and media. In addition, I compile and edit our diocesan Annual Review publication which follows the Church’s year from Advent to Advent.
In addition, our choirs’, Bishop’s and priests’ regular leading of both live and pre-recorded liturgies and worship on TV and Radio have made us the most-broadcast Catholic diocese on the BBC, bringing the Beauty of Holiness into hearts and lives far beyond our own diocesan boundaries.
Why not ask your Parish Priest if he would like you to volunteer as a ‘Newsgatherer’ to select and forward good news stories and photographs from your parish to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am keen to promote your stories and initiatives, so please feel free to get in touch via email@example.com – and remember, I would rather hear about the same thing from several people than not be told about it at all!
