Who We Are

DeSales Media Group is the communications and technology arm of the Diocese of Brooklyn. With the charge of helping Catholics come to know Christ by connecting with their faith, we aim to open the channels of authentic and effective dialogue within and between the Christian community.

To do this, DeSales runs a number of media properties through which local Catholics stay informed and up to date on the things that matter most. This includes NET TV, Catholic Telemedia Network, and The Tablet and Nuestra Voz newspapers. DeSales also offers professional services. Parishes, schools, and all diocesan entities benefit from DeSales’ digital and creative services, where websites and marketing campaigns come to life.

It takes a world-class team to tackle these important Catholic ministries, and we’re looking for more top talent to work with us out of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Help us grow our community in faith, hope and love, through meaningful interactions with Catholics, and services rendered to Catholic institutions in the tri-state area.
