The Opportunity
The Creative department at DeSales Media Group pushes the envelope of what it means to engage Catholics in their faith. Part digital/creative agency, part brand marketing, and part software services provider, we cover a lot of ground. We create the graphic materials and media content for newspapers, websites, TV, advertising, and social media. We develop the content for digital campaigns that aim to increase donations for scholarships for education. We get all the dioceses in the state together to use our interactive platforms to spread the message of the true reason for Christmas. We think differently about what it means to be in the service of our diocese. We don’t dwell on the past: we look to the future. And we are excited for the challenge.

Who We Are
DeSales Media Group is the communications and technology arm of the Diocese of Brooklyn. With the charge of helping Catholics come to know Christ by connecting with their faith, DeSales aims to open the channels of authentic and effective dialogue within and between the Christian community.

To do this, DeSales runs a multitude of media properties through which local Catholics stay informed and up to date on the things that matter most. NET TV cable and online streaming network delivers licensed and original content in English and Spanish, and includes New York City’s only daily Catholic news program “Currents.” The Tablet is the only weekly Catholic newspaper in New York City. Nuestra Voz is New York’s monthly Spanish-language Catholic newspaper.

DeSales also works directly with other businesses. Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens stay technologically advanced with instructional media resources through the Catholic Telemedia Network. Parishes, schools, and all diocesan entities benefit from DeSales’ digital and creative services, where websites and marketing campaigns come to life. DeSales also offers a number of PR services, government services, tech services, production services, and services relating to external affairs.

We’ve created a world-class team to tackle these important Catholic ministries, and we’re looking for more top talent to work with us out of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Help us grow our community in faith, hope and love, through meaningful interactions with Catholics, and services rendered to Catholic institutions in the tri-state area.
