The General Directory for Catechesis states, “in addition to the numerous traditional means in use, the media has become essential for evangelization and catechesis.” The GDC goes on to say, “In fact, the Church would feel herself guilty before God if she did not avail of those powerful instruments which human skill is constantly developing and perfecting. In them she finds a new and more effective forum a platform or pulpit from which she can address the multitudes.” The National Directory for Catechesis notes that “using media correctly and competently can lead to a genuine inculturation of the Gospel.” Putting these words, set before us by the GDC and the NDC, into motion, the Department for Media and Technology provides assistance to the Secretariat for Catholic Education and its departments in proclaiming the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic Church by using all available forms of media, including the Internet, audio, video and print materials.
