CHARLESTON—I want to personally thank you for your continued support and patronage of The Catholic Miscellany. As some of you may know, I was appointed to lead The Miscellany in late January.
I am elated to have this opportunity to serve the Church in South Carolina and expand our reach to evangelize those in the pews and beyond.
As we approach the 200th anniversary of our first diocesan publication, the U.S. Catholic Miscellany, we are looking at ways to honor our past while also moving forward with new ways to evangelize a modern world.
After much contemplation, we have discerned our new path with the creation of a monthly magazine.
This new magazine — through orthodox catechetical teaching, commitment to beautiful design, connection with clergy and people in the pews, and an expanding digital platform — will make for a cohesive outlet for our faith and its expansion into Southern culture.
Also, as a particularly exciting addition, we will include a Spanish version of the magazine that will be connected transversely to the English one. With this development, we will have a unique opportunity to engage our Spanish speaking patrons in a new and intentional way.
We are excited for this change and new direction, and want to acknowledge that, without you, our subscribers and patrons, The Catholic Miscellany could not make this leap.
We believe this format will allow more in-depth content both catechetically and culturally, and will allow the reader a new experience in their hands and on our digital devices.
Our updated digital platform associated with the magazine will be a wonderful place to house our content. Podcasts are coming soon as well as other digital content on the horizon.
Look for our first magazine issue to hit mailboxes in June, followed by a special publication to honor and celebrate the Bicentennial.
