Tell me more about the Catholic Media Conference

Join your fellow Catholic journalists, media professionals and communicators in Portland this summer. It's time to re-connect, update skills and refresh with those who share in the mission of communicating the Good News.

The Catholic Media Conference is scheduled over four days, with sessions covering issues relevant to many aspects of developing, managing and producing all forms of communications, and the business side that makes it all happen. There is also time set aside for mingling, networking, and otherwise enjoying each other's company.

The Catholic Media Conference celebrates the positive impact of individuals and publications for their contributions to the Catholic press. The purpose of the Catholic Press Awards is to acknowledge the outstanding work of its Publisher and Communication members as they strive to further the mission of the Church. On a daily basis they inform, inspire and educate readers keeping them connected to their faith, and telling the story of the Church. The Catholic Press Awards Banquet is the culmination of the conference, where we celebrate those recognized through these awards.
