Organizers of the World Congress of Catholic TV, which will take place October 10-12 in Madrid, have launched a website at http://www.congresomundialtv.com, where they will make all of the information about the event available online.
The event is being sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Madrid and the Garcia-Morente Foundation. The website offers information in Spanish, English, Italian and French.
Speaking about the event, Msgr. Enrique Planas of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, said that its purpose “is to take note of the development of Catholic television in the coming years, in order to form a network of Catholic television stations cooperating together in evangelization.”
Msgr. Planas said the Congress would include “three key addresses and discussion groups.” He said the first topic of discussion would be “the Catholic identity” of television, “since currently there is no common idea regarding Catholic television.”
