The Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land (the bishops of the different Catholic rites), have created a “Media Commission” in anticipation of Pope Francis' May 24-26 pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

Given the responsibility of putting into place the necessary infrastructures that can accommodate journalists from around the world coming to cover the visit to the Holy Land, the commission is providing material and information for journalists that can also be of interest to the general public.

The commission therefore has inaugurated an official Web site that will be regularly updated.

The site is in seven languages: English, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Arabic and Hebrew.  

The site offers information on what is happening before and during the pilgrimage to journalists, communicating the intentions of the Pope, the significance of his words and deeds as well as presenting the realities of the Church and the Christians in the Holy Land.
