Endorsing the theme, the Executive Secretary of the CBCI Media Office in New Delhi, Fr. George Plathottam said, ``Live, learn and lead is our mission... the important mission is to communicate the Gospel.``
The workshop themes were: Teachings of the Church on Media and Communications, Print Media and Pastoral Ministry, PRO, Crisis Management and Pastoral Ministry, Electronic Media and Pastoral Ministry, Alternative Media and Pastoral Ministry, Media Management and pastoral plan, Reading the signs of the Times and New Ways of Being Church, New competencies & skills required of the pastors and leaders, Media Education and Film Analysis as a new way of Evangelization, New Media Technologies and their applications for Pastoral Ministry, Media Applications in faith, Catechetics and Development Communications
