Between the 17th and 19th June, the Church in Malta hosted the annual meeting of media officials and spokespersons of the European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE).
This meeting, which was held at the Archbishop’s Curia, brought together 53 participants from 27 European countries and the Holy See, to discuss important issues related to communication and media. The delegation was led by Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, President of the CCEE.
Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna was invited to be one of the keynote speakers of the conference which was also addressed by Dr Paolo Ruffini, the Prefect of the Dicastery for Communication of the Holy See. Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Galea Curmi inaugurated the conference.
The CCEE Malta meeting responded to the call of Pope Francis, who in his message for the 2019 World Communications Day said that the present context calls on Christians to manifest that communion which marks our identity as believers. We pray that this conference will be beneficial to the Catholic Church and to Christians in Europe.
