Blanket Coverage of Pope in Ireland

Posted on Aug 26, 2018

Pope in Ireland

Pope Francis was in Ireland Aug. 25 and 26 for the conclusion of the World Meeting of Families, and DeSales Media Group was with him every step of the way.

The Currents News team partnered with Crux to lead the on-the-ground coverage, with correspondents Michelle Powers and Tim Harfmann reporting from Ireland with Crux’s John Allen, Christopher White, Inés San Martín, Claire Giangravè, and Elise Harris. These reporters delivered live reporting on Currents News, and their stories also appeared in The Tablet.

In New York, Liz Faublas anchored our round-the-clock live coverage and commentary with Ed Wilkinson, editor of The Tablet, and Jorge Domínguez, editor of Nuestra Voz.

Once again, DeSales Media Group proved its commitment to Catholic news by putting an unmatched focus on the Pope’s latest trip.

Leaders and communicators from around the Diocese of Brooklyn gathered on World Communications Day for a luncheon to honor Ed Wilkinson, editor of The Tablet, for his nearly 50 years of service to Catholic news in Brooklyn and Queens.

Wilkinson, who received the 2018 St. Francis DeSales Distinguished Communicator Award, spoke of the past, present and future of The Tablet and DeSales Media Group. He talked about complex issues, including the many changes in the diocese and the news business and the need to adapt without losing site of the paper’s mission. But in the end, he was able to boil everything down to a suprisingly simple statement of purpose.

“I’m just another loyal member of the Church here in the diocese trying hard to tell the story of the Church here in Brooklyn and Queens,” he said. “As a journalist, we try to be fair and impartial, but we always start from a Catholic point of view. That’s non-negotiable. It’s not bias, it’s just where we’re coming from. We’re Catholic, and we’re not ashamed of it.”
