World Communication Day will take place on May 16, 2021. This was in 1967 by Pope Paul VI. Introduced as World Mass Media Day and always takes place on the Sunday before Pentecost, i.e. the 7th Sunday of Easter or three days after Ascension Day. In Germany in particular, World Media Day is celebrated as “Media Sunday” on the 2nd Sunday in September.
Every year, on January 24th, the Pope publishes a message for the coming World Day of Social Communication. January 24th is the feast day of St. Francis de Sales, who was named patron of journalists in 1922. Every year, a certain media topic is brought into the focus of the World Day, which is intended to stimulate thought. In general, the day should promote the dissemination of Catholic teaching through the media.
