New media is a means to get the Church's message across to a younger generation of Catholics, said the Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Social Communication Monsignor Paul Tighe.

"The Pope said that young people are using new media to find relationships," he told NT News.com.au. "They just want connectiveness," he said.

Pope2you.net - the site created by Monsignor Tighe - has YouTube clips, a Facebook app and an iPhone app. "It got five million hits in four days," he said.

Msgr Tighe spoke at a public relations national conference at Darwin Convention Centre on Tuesday. "At the heart of Gospel...is the importance of love and relationships.

"We need to let people teach us how to communicate," he said.
