The Dicastery for Communication and the Gravissimum Educationis Foundation, under the auspices of the Dicastery for Culture and Education, have joined together for an educational project giving a voice to Catholic university students specializing in media and communication.

The initiative currently involves the collaboration of the Department of Communication at De La Salle University Dasmariñas, Philippines, and the Department of Media Studies at Christ (a deemed-to-be- university), India. 

The project offers Vatican News as a platform for sharing news and media content produced by students at both institutions, in order to contribute to greater understanding, knowledge, and appreciation for the cultural richness of the local churches, a reflection of the universality of the Church globally.

With the theme, "Good Makes Headlines!," reporting will feature multimedia stories on the challenges and hopes of coming from local realities and contexts, and how faith supports these efforts to make a better world.

The project also serves as a learning experience for the students on how to communicate their own local situations to a global world, as well as promote responsible communication that aims to build up and contribute to the common good. - Vatican News


Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
