Today's Catholic Life magazine launches first weekend of November

Today’s Catholic Life, an exciting new lifestyle magazine created by the Secretariat of Communications and staff of Today’s Catholic newspaper, will begin distribution on the first weekend of November.

The magazine highlights the dynamics of the fun and colorful people and places throughout the diocese and is offered as an additional product to complement Today’s Catholic newspaper, which will continue to be mailed to all registered Catholic households in the diocese 43 times per year.

Tim Johnson, editor of Today’s Catholic newspaper, says the content of the new magazine is meaningful. “It offers some heartwarming stories not only from our staff but from our readers as well. It’s an exciting new venture!”

A limited number of magazines will be distributed directly to 90 parishes, schools and universities in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend six times each year. Subscriptions are also available at $20 per year to ensure personal home delivery.

Sean McBride, Secratariat of Communications looks forward to the inaugural issue and says it offers advertisers significant reach and a built-in readership. “We’re very excited about the award winning Today’s Catholic staff putting forth such a beautiful magazine. We’re pleased with the advertisers and potential advertiser response and are hopeful for a tremendous reader response, not only from Catholics in the area but the greater community of Northern Indiana.”

Today’s Catholic Life will publish six times per year, every two months beginning in November. The premiere issue will feature rich Christmas traditions and customs. The January issue follows with a must-see wedding guide. Pages of the March issue will offer a spring theme and celebrate Easter, gardening and health and vitality. The May issue will feature fun in the sun with an invigorating summer theme. July will present a back-to-school theme, with the September issue featuring a senior theme and active living.

The dynamic magazine was created to appeal to all ages. Tess Steffen, advertising sales executive, says of the new venture, “Readers young and old will find the articles appealing. We want this to be a family-friendly magazine. It’s easy to read and it’s given us a chance to fill a niche and reach that group whose time is limited, but who still want a Catholic connection to the community.”

Today’s Catholic Life is a contemporary Catholic magazine that offers a fresh, new look into northern Indiana’s people, places and ministries. Look for it in early November at your local parish.
