Fr Federico Lombardi, spokesman for the Holy See, is to be honoured for his service to communications during a conference in Spain next month.
Taking place between February 3 and 5 in Madrid, the conference will
draw diocesan communication leaders who will see Fr Lombardi receive the
Bravo award following a presentation to the gathering.
The Jesuit has
been director of the Holy See’s press office since 2006.
Reflecting the modern landscape in terms of communication, the
conference will also hear from Ireland’s Msgr Paul Tighe, secretary of
the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, on the Church’s
presence on the internet and social networks.
