Social Communications

What is SOCOM?

Social Communications (SOCOM) promotes the voice of the Church in the public arena.

SOCOM interacts with the vast world of both Christian and secular media. 

SOCOM develops, organizes, and conducts media education and awareness programs, and forms Church media operators.

 

The SOCOM Commission is focused on sharing news, views, and social issues of the faith events and current happenings in the Catholic Church and in society. This is the church’s instrument for advocacy and public relations.
