Pledge your support for local Catholic media

Dear valued reader, 

What’s the first thing you see when you open your web browser? How about your social media feeds?  If your answer isn’t Catholic Courier content, perhaps this Catholic Press Month is an opportunity to make a change! 

A recent survey by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate found that significantly more adult Catholics in the United States today than in the past are choosing to stay connected to their local communities by reading their diocesan newspapers. 

That’s also true of you, our readers. In our most recent readership survey, more than 72% of respondents said they turn to the Courier first for news and information about the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Rochester.  

Yet as Staff Writer Jennifer Burke’s story in our February 2024 issue explains, Catholic media across the country face many challenges in today’s economic and cultural environment. As we prepare in October to celebrate the 135th anniversary of our founding, will you partner with us to show your support for local Catholic media? 

In honor of Catholic Press Month, we’ve provided a pledge card listing a few easy and tangible ways you can show your support. We encourage you to fill it out so we’ll know we can count on you! 

In sincere gratitude for your time, readership and support, 

Karen M. Franz

Franz is general manager and editor of the Catholic Courier and El Mensajero Católico.
