Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Each week, The Catholic Messenger tells stories of faith while also helping make sense of issues and events affecting Catholics in the Diocese of Davenport and around the world.
The Catholic Messenger is the official newspaper of the diocese and serves as a great resource for me to communicate with you. That is why I have chosen to have one edition of the newspaper delivered free to every household in our diocese on Jan. 21.
From college students to families to lay leaders to clergy, there is something for everyone in The Catholic Messenger. Opinion pieces and editorials offer unique perspectives on relevant topics. Parish and school leaders gain ideas by seeing what others are doing. Volunteer opportunities and local events can be found on the calendar page, which publishes listings at no charge. Students can use the newspaper as a faith-strengthening resource during a change-filled time of life. Families can get inspiration from stories that share the joys and challenges of living the Catholic life.
My hope is that all households, inspired by the insightful articles, columns and editorials, will choose to subscribe to The Catholic Messenger. Both print and the E-edition are available to accommodate your reading preferences.
The Catholic Messenger remains a vital part of the ministry of our diocese, yet it requires your support today more than ever before. The cost of $29 for a year’s subscription in the diocese — one price for the print or E-Edition, or for both — is a worthy investment. Because of continued good stewardship of resources, the price for this year’s subscription remains the same. Please subscribe or buy a subscription for a friend or family member. Read it faithfully.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Rev. Martin Amos/Bishop of Davenport
