Registrations have opened for the Congress, which is normally held every three years but has not been staged since 2018 due to the pandemic.

The Congress – supported by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, Australian Catholic Media Council and Australasian Catholic Press Association – is an opportunity to network, build skills and learn about the challenges and opportunities in sharing the Gospel in the 21st century.

It is open to everyone involved in media and communications, from beginners to professionals, at a parish, agency, school, diocesan or national level.

The Congress sessions will be held at the Miller Hotel in North Sydney, with the official dinner featuring former foreign correspondent and journalism educator Peter Greste.

Award-winning US-based author and media literacy educator, Sister Rose Pacatte, will deliver the opening keynote address and lead masterclasses.

The event will feature presentations and masterclasses on artificial intelligence, social media, videography, photography, advertising, book publishing, web design, strategic communications, spiritual conversations and more.

The Congress would not be possible without the sponsorship of Australian Catholic University, Sydney CDF, UniSuper, Caritas and CathNews, and the many hours of work put in by ACPA, ACMC and ACBC personnel.

Check out the Congress website for further details, including a link to the Eventbrite ticketing platform and a list of North Sydney accommodation options.

Early bird ticket prices will apply until June 28. ACPA members are entitled to a discount on early bird and regular ticket pricing.

Further details about guest speakers and the Congress schedule will be published on the website in coming weeks.
