A woman experienced in communications on a parish, diocesan and national level has been appointed Media and Communications Manager for the World Meeting of Families (WMOF).

Ms Brenda Drumm (48), a native of Belturbet, Co. Cavan and based in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, has been seconded from her current role as Communications Officer with the Catholic Communications Office of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference.

Fr Tim Bartlett, WMOF Secretary General, welcomed the appointment saying Brenda “brings unrivalled skills in so many areas of Church communications, particularly the use of social media and is highly respected by those who work with her both nationally and internationally”.

Brenda, a mother of two, produces and presents a weekly faith podcast for the bishops’ conference and she is also the editor of their monthly newsletter, Sharing the Good News. Brenda was part of the team that developed the news source for the bishops’ conference, and this autumn she will publish her second book, The Digital Parish.
