On 24 January 2019, the liturgical memorial of Saint Francis de Sales, patron saint of writers and journalists, the Holy See released the Holy Father's Message for the 53rd World Communications Day. The message is entitled "We are members of one another (Eph 4:25): From social network communities to the human community".

In his Message, Pope Francis emphasizes the importance of the word community: "A community is that much stronger if it is cohesive and supportive, if it is animated by feelings of trust, and pursues common objectives. The community as a network of solidarity requires mutual listening and dialogue, based on the responsible use of language."

In Canada, World Communications Day will be celebrated during 2 June 2019, the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.
