The Communications office coordinates the church’s print, internet, radio and TV presence in the diocese. The office uses various media outlets throughout the year to promote good Christian messages to the broader community. The director also works with local media on Catholic issues in the news through statements and on camera.

Mississippi Catholic, the diocesan newspaper, is an integral part of the office of communications. The paper reaches more than 13,500 Catholic households in the diocese. It has recently undergone some style changes to coincide with the new web sites for the diocese.


Director — Maureen Smith, 601.969.3581
