General Manager of CAMSEL, Lucille Nathu said that as social media is sometimes used to spread fake news, “the Church must not be afraid of using this tool to speak truth…we as media have a responsibility to share ‘truth’ especially as we struggle as a nation with the many negative realities we experience.”

The keynote speaker is John L Allen Jr, editor of the online news site Crux, which specialises in coverage of the Vatican and the Catholic Church. He is also the senior Vatican analyst for CNN and the author of ten books on the Vatican and Catholic affairs with his most recent being The Francis Miracle: Inside the Transformation of the Pope and the Church.
