The Church encourages those in ministry to communicate via the Internet. The Holy Father issues an annual message on the Feast of St. Frances of Sales for World Communications Day. Engaging in electronic communications is indeed an important aspect of outreach for our faith communities, but it requires diligence, oversight, and proper safeguards. Location leadership should continually strive to improve communications with parish and school communities. Locations should adhere to the following guidelines as they consider and embark on improvements in communications with the people of God.
