PNG Youth Coordinators now aware of Church media
About twenty five PNG diocesan youth coordinators, in Goroka for their annual meeting of assessing and planning of activities, had a session with the CBC Secretary for Social Communication, Fr Giorgio Licini PIME, on their second day of works on 20 November. Fr Giorgio presented them the main activities already in place, particularly the monthly Catholic Reporter, this website, the few Catholic radio stations around the country, and the TV program Signs of the Times on Kundu TV2 every Sunday night at 7:30 PM.
The Youth Coordinators manifested interest in the field of media communication with a number of them, however, still unaware of the above mentioned initiatives. Some promised to cooperate by sending in information than can then be disseminated in the Internet and published in the Catholic Reporter, the Wantok niuspepa , the Faith Page of The National every Thursday or other media outlets.
The Youth Coordinators were also invited to join the workshops being planned by the CBC office for Social Communications during the year 2013 for radio broadcasting, video journalism, news writing and basic media education. (G.L.) (cbcpngsi.org – firstname.lastname@example.org)
