Turning a new page with Catholic San Francisco magazine

We are embarking on a new era in Archdiocesan communications – one suited to the modes of communications that define the 21st century. Catholic San Francisco as a weekly and biweekly newspaper is publishing its last issue with the newspaper you hold in your hands.

But Catholic San Francisco will remain a part of all our lives, continuing as a glossy magazine with inspiring articles about ministries of the Archdiocese, news you can use and Catholic content to nourish your faith and daily life. We will deliver it to you 6-8 times a year, beginning in September.

Catholic San Francisco staff will continue to offer you the reader breaking news and current events, but will deliver that content digitally. If you are not already receiving Catholic San Francisco e-letters, please sign up for the new Friday Catholic San Francisco weekly newsletter, at sfarch.org/signup.

That is where we are going. Where we have been is a history worth celebrating. Catholic San Francisco was launched in 1999, and delivered a weekly or biweekly newspaper to every registered household in the Archdiocese for many years. It brought the news and faith closer to Catholics in the tradition of The Monitor, the newspaper of the Archdiocese from 1858 to 1984. Inside these pages are photos and stories with some of those moments in the last 20-plus years. They saw three popes, three archbishops and more elected officials than we can list here.
