International St Francis de Sales Days 2018

For the past twenty-two years, once a year, over 200 professional journalists of the Catholic media and Church communications chiefs have come together for three days of discussion during the St Francis de Sales days.

This year, for the first time, this convention is co-organized by the Office in charge of the Holy See’s communication, the Federation of the Catholic Media and SIGNIS. Therefore, the St Francis de Sales days will have an exceptional international dimension this year, facilitating new perspectives of encounter and exchanges. The convention is organized around a crucial and relevant theme for people working in our areas of activity: Media and Truth. Written in the continuity of the theme chosen by Pope Francis for the next Social Communication Day, it will allow us to enrich our practices and to follow the path of the Holy Father.

The 22nd International St. Francis de Sales Days will take place from Wednesday 24th of January to Friday 26th of January in Lourdes. We will, then, work under the watchful eyes of St Bernadette and of the Virgin Mary.

We shall have the pleasure of welcoming His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin,Vatican’s secretary of State.

In the programme you will discover the richness of the meetings to come. For those attending, a simultaneous translation in 4 languages will be provided (French, English, Italian and Spanish), enabling everyone to follow and engage in the workshops.

All additional registration information can be found here.

Places are limited so we encourage you to register early!
