The Pauline Center for Media Studies (PCMS) is a project of the Daughters of St. Paul. Its focus is to develop and encourage media literacy/media mindfulness within the context of culture, education, and faith formation.
The PCMS, founded by Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP, began in Boston in 1995 and moved to Los Angeles in 2006. In 2015, an East Coast office opened in New York, directed by Sister Hosea Rupprecht, FSP. The PCMS expresses a part of the mission of the Daughters of St. Paul to educate and form the audience to critically discern the messages communicated through traditional mass media and emerging forms of social communication.
