The following article seeks to identify the image of the Catholic Church projected by the newspapers La Nacion (Argentina), La Tercera (Chile), El Comercio (Peru), El Tiempo (Colombia), and Exc elsior (Mexico) during the first ten months of the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to achieve this objective, a qualitative and quantitative analysis methodology was used in the selected journalistic texts where, based on the framing method and common places (topoi), we sought to establish the role played by the Church and religious organizations during the health crisis. The relevance of this study lies in the fact that it allows us to understand the way in which the press presented the actions of the Church during the coronavirus emergency, what were the emphases and the underlying arguments used by the media. This contributes to the analysis of the communicative processes of the Church in periods of crisis, processes that involve its authorities, the faithful and society as a whole.
