About us

Welcome to Fides Media Limited (the Social Communications Department of the Catholic Diocese of Awka), Anambra State, Nigeria

Fides Media is a multi-media project and the publisher of the Fides Newspaper and the monthly Fides Bulletin. Fides newspaper is outstanding for its uniqueness: grassroot orientation, people rather than interest oriented. It is pastoral, ecumenical, and independent, and a bona fide member of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) with its own Chapel, Fides Chapel. It has contributed immensely to human development, youth formation and skills, community information and education, and championing of professionalism and creative initiatives in media practice, journalism and communication, among others.

Fides Units
Fides, however, is much more than a newspaper. It was conceived as a multi-media project to be unfolded into multiple units. The following units have been developed over the years: 1) the Press/Newspaper unit, 2) Printing and Publishing unit, 3) Audio/Visual unit intended to be developed into Radio and Television Broadcasting, 4) Library/Museum, 5) Research/Documentation unit, 6) Outreach/Enlightenment unit, 7) Internet/E-evangelization unit, 8) Fides Fishery and Farms unit, 9) Fides Young Writers’ Forum (involving secondary schools within Anambra State and beyond), 10) Professional Engagement unit (that works with SIGNIS, CAMPAN, CAEAN, etc), 11) Branding unit (including car, T-shirt, Office branding, Plates & Mugs, Pin-Ups and Awards, etc).
