Indonesian National Office of Social Communication (OSC) in collaboration with then Jayapura Diocesan OSC, organized a Content Production and Reporting Training on January 30-31, at St. Nicholas seminary of Merauke Archdiocese, Indonesia.
This joint training was held to support the formation of a strong and synergistic team for social communications in the Church.
Father Steven Lalu, Secretary of the Indonesian Bishops' Conference (KWI) OSC, inaugurated the training by explaining the duties and roles of Social Communication in the church.
"Happy to serve at Kosmos [komunikasi sosial, social communication], always open to continuous learning and willing to work together. Komsos is increasing in its importance, so we must further enhance our ability to further communicate the work and teachings of the church not only inward but also outward," the priest remarked.
Christopher Adisurya from Ksmos of the Bandung Diocese; Samuel Krismanto from Komsos of Denpasar Diocese and Fransiscus Borgia Edgar from UPP KAS were present as guardians to participate in sharing and synergizing the success of the coverage of the Ordination of the Bishop of Jayapura.

45 people consisting of parish team members registered as trainees.
The first day of the training covered live streaming, audio capture, multimedia creation, and social media content.
After the presentation and question & answer session, participants were split into 7 working groups with a sub-theme of content creation assignments to help them grasp and apply what they learnt.
