What is NEXT?

We’re facing a critical moment never before seen in our lifetimes. In the society and the Church: a lack of clarity and confusion, a toxic popular culture, accelerating disaffiliation, deep polarization all leaving devastation in their wake. In the media industry the pressures have also mounted: fragmentation, the impact of social media platforms on behavior, and increasing emphasis on tailoring content to audience needs.
EWTN’s role and responsibility has never been more clear and urgent.

Based on more than 18 months of research and preparation, NEXT is a multi-year, enterprise-wide, digital-first strategy to deliver the Gospel to the world through media and technology for decades to come. NEXT is faithful to the spirit of our foundress, Mother Angelica, who was never deterred by a challenge and who was as innovative and entrepreneurial as anyone for her time.
