In its activity, the Catholic Church has used and uses the media. At the beginning, magazines, radio, television, and finally the Internet and the so-called new media were used. This latter medium quite effectively displaces previously used ones and becomes a place of communication. In the undertaken research, the most important opinion-forming websites in Poland were analyzed (www. onet.pl, www.wp.pl, www.interia.pl, www. gazeta.pl, www.o2.pl and www.fakt.pl) in terms of publishing texts on the six foreign apostolic journeys of Pope Francis, including missionary ones in 2017. The number, quality, type and time of publication were examined, as well as pastoral conclusions regarding the presence of papal missions and ecclesiastical activities in secular websites. On this basis, answer the following hypotheses, the first one: “Media in Poland informs about pilgrimages Pope Francis (quantitative and qualitative)” – is unconfirmed. The second one: “Spiritual preparation for using new media and inform about issues related to the Church is appropriate” – is unconfirmed; third: “The number of information and the way of informing about pilgrimages is insufficient” – confirmed.
