The Department for Communications is calling on Catholics based in the Diocese to support our work by sharing your good news stories and events.

To pitch your idea or story, please contact us at webmaster@rcdhn.org.uk.

The Church exists to communicate precisely this: Truth, Goodness and Beauty "in person".

Social Media Policy

The rapid growth of social media as a form of individual and mass communication is a fact of modern life across professions and generations. The Church positively engages with the social media, acknowledging its responsibility to proclaim the Gospel in all times and places.

Social media allows individuals and groups to disseminate ideas and visual content potentially to a worldwide audience, which crosses personal, professional and organisational boundaries. It is therefore essential that we recognise the potential impact of what is communicated to others and to be clear about our responsibilities as individuals, groups and as a Diocese.

This policy aims to ensure that the Diocese is not exposed to legal and governance risks through the use of social media and that its reputation is not adversely affected.

It applies to all means of electronic communication within the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle, including its constituent Parishes and Partnerships and refers specifically to employees, clergy, religious and volunteers.
