Media Instructions

Reporters and photographers are welcome to cover celebrations of the Mass, diocesan events and to visit our parishes and schools, but we ask that the Office of Communications be notified in advance so that we may assist you and provide proper clearance from the pastor or principal. With proper clearance, photography and videography may be allowed inside one of our Churches or at one of our diocesan schools.

When attending an event, media is asked to stay a respectable distance from the altar and not stand between the altar/sanctuary and the congregation. We also ask that you respect the privacy of individuals during Mass and especially of those receiving Communion.  


To better assist media and provide an understanding of the Catholic Mass, media is encouraged to view How to Cover the Catholic Mass

Reporters wishing to be added to the Media Press Release Distribution List are welcome to send contact information to the Office of Communications.
