Holy See: December 2009 Archives

Yellow Pages online.jpgThe Pontifical Council for Social Communications has opened a Web portal to collect and provide information on Catholic media around the globe. The portal, www.intermirifica.net, was launched in collaboration with the Latin American Episcopal Conference and SIGNIS, the World Catholic Association for Communication. It is currently in Spanish, English and French; Portuguese is forthcoming.

The directory has a "wiki" structure, meaning that is is designed to be completed and updated by users. It also functions as a search engine for radio or television stations and for production companies. According to the site, the portal's main goal is to "facilitate communication within the Catholic mass media world so that they can interchange common ideas and projects." The name intermirifica refers to the only document from the Second Vatican Council dedicated to social communications. The site explains that the portal "hopes to become 'the yellow pages' of the Church's mass media."
