Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) is an important component in the faith lives of individual Catholics and in the growth of the Church in today’s world. The CCC provides funding for Catholic content on the Internet, radio and television and in print to bring the Gospel message to life. Fifty percent of your donations to the CCC collection stay in our diocese to support our local communication efforts including the diocesan website (www.davenportdiocese.org) and the expanding role of social networking.
In today’s world, it is essential for the Catholic voice to be where the people are: whether that is sharing on social networking sites, listening to MP3 players or reading a newspaper. For the faithful or those searching for faith, the CCC provides rich content bringing the Gospel message one page, click or download at a time.
In his message for the 2009 World Communications Day, Pope Benedict XVI said, “I ask you to introduce into the culture of this new environment of communications and information technology the values on which you have built your lives.”
For more information on the CCC and the projects funded by the collection, visit www.usccb.org/nationalcollections. I thank you in advance for your generous contribution to the Catholic Communication Campaign on June 11-12.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Rev. Martin Amos
Bishop of Davenport
