The Vatican Information Service is an official news service of the Holy See Press Office.

The service was founded in 1991, and transmits news on a daily basis at 3pm Rome time, except during the month of August and on Vatican State holidays (generally Holy Days of Obligation).

The service is available in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Italian.

The VIS is a freely available service, and invites subscribers from around the world to use their electronic mailing list.

Generally, each VIS broadcast contains information of papal activities, including meetings, appointments, publications and audiences. Periodically the deaths of prelates are announced, as are the activities of the various Congregations, Councils and Synods.

On Saturday, June 27, 2015, Pope Francis, through a motu proprio ("on his own initiative") apostolic letter, established in the Roman Curia the Secretariat for Communications, and the VIS is expected to be incorporated eventually into it.[1][2]
