Event and Video Project Requests

The Office of Communications is responsible for communication efforts within the Diocese of Raleigh. We provide information to our Catholic community and the general public.

The office assists parishes, diocesan offices and both local and national media. The office's director is the primary spokesperson for the bishop and the diocese. The office supports and collaborates internally with other diocesan offices to plan and promote special events. Additionally, the office manages the diocesan website, publishes NC Catholics magazine and produces both video and audio programs in English and Spanish.

Event coverage and video project requests are for Diocese of Raleigh ministries only and are subject to approval.
