JUBILEE OF JOURNALISTS AND ENTERTAINERS
Papal Meetings with Media Personalities

    VATICAN CITY, JAN 24 (ZENIT).- The publication of John Paul II's Message for the World Media Day provided the opportunity Monday morning to present two significant events planned for this Holy Year to the press: the Journalists' Jubilee and the Jubilee of the World of Entertainment.

    These two initiatives will bring together communicators of all forms of mass media, from professionals in the circus world to Hollywood personalities to journalists.

    Bishop Pierfranco Pastore, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Communications, explained in the Vatican Press Office that the Journalists' Jubilee, scheduled for June 1-4, will begin with a welcome meeting at the Pontifical Urban University on the afternoon of June 1 and will continue later in the Sistine Chapel. The next day, June 2, there will be several conferences. On Saturday morning the participants are invited to join an ecumenical celebration and on Sunday, June 4, journalists from all over the world will participate in a Mass, which will be followed by a meeting with the Pope.

    Archbishop John Patrick Foley, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications disclosed, at the end of the press conference, that Hollywood personalities have been invited, but he did not give any names. ZE00012409
