Attended by 137 delegates (45 priests, 7 religious sisters, and 85 lay people), the convention featured various speakers who shared their expertise in the field of media and journalism.

In his homily, Archbishop Valles emphasized that a Catholic Communicator must have a heart that is full of joy and delight and possesses hope and confidence in order to articulate the truth in situations of good and evil. 

“To be a media person that would convey to the community a message that is filled with joy and delight is so wonderful,” Archbishop Valles said.
