Vatican News was established in June 2015 with the publication of a Motu Proprio by Pope Francis which announced the creation of a new Dicastery of the Roman Curia: the Vatican Secretariat for Communication.

Vatican News goes beyond the idea of simple digital convergence by responding to, and even anticipating, the continual changes concerning where and how it communicates.

Its platform is multilingual, multicultural, multichannel, multimedia and multidevice.

The challenge is to respond “ever better to the needs of the mission of the Church” in our contemporary culture, with the aim of “communicating the Gospel of mercy to all peoples” according to their different cultures.

The Prefect of the Dicastery is Dr Paolo Ruffini and the Editorial Director is Dr Andrea Tornielli.
