It is the words of Pope Francis enhanced the inspiration, that ‘in an age when technology is ever-evolving, Catholic news organizations must be willing to adapt to proclaim the Gospel to all effectively, and authentic servants of tradition are those who, while keeping memory alive, know how to discern the signs of the times and open new paths’. Having inspired by the heart thriving words of Holy Father the conference adapted its motives, i.e. to evangelise the world through encounters in the ‘digital world’ and ‘updating ourselves in the field’ of digital media communiation.

Among these 10 sessions, 2 sessions will be presentations by two alumni students on their respective topics, and 2 sessions by press and visual media persons from India.
