“Be who you are and be that well.”

– St. Francis DeSales

DeSales Media is a Catholic ministry in the Diocese of Brooklyn. We are at once a media holding company, a full-service agency, and a technology provider.

Our Mission

Use all forms of communication, media and technology to lead Catholics to a deeper faith in Jesus Christ. Inspire and generate greater attendance, support and interaction in parishes, schools and organizations in the Diocese of Brooklyn and other dioceses regionally, nationally and globally.

About Us

Our greatest goal is to drive Catholics to put their faith in action, by serving the faithful directly through our news and media properties, and by serving the Church institutions that serve the faithful through our agency services and initiatives in marketing, communications, and technology. DeSales Media Group is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are named for St. Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers and journalists. We were founded in 2011 by visionary leader Most Reverend Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop Emeritus of Brooklyn. Our purpose from the outset was to address the core communications needs of the Diocese of Brooklyn: external communications, internal communications, and operations and data management. Today, we continue the mission more broadly and deeply than ever before.

At DeSales Media, we stand by our commitment to driving Catholics to put their faith in action ... starting right here, with ourselves.

While our entire ministry is designed to serve the faithful in our community, we believe it's important to get involved outside of work as well.

We host the annual Bishop's Golf Classic, which has raised more than $2.7 million to support the works of Catholic organizations near and far.

And twice a year, the whole company has a day of service when we come together to tackle a worthwhile project. For example, repainting a school or helping a parish get ready for Christmas. (Including building a nativity from scratch!) Our departments regularly take time out to volunteer at soup kitchens and homeless shelters. For us, this is some of the best team building around.

And in times of national disaster like the Coronavirus pandemic and the hurricanes that hit Houston and Puerto Rico, DeSales has been there to show that Catholics Care.
