Information is easy to come by. Good information — the honest kind that educates, inspires and motivates — is not. Reliable sources are critical in an era of information overload.
For Catholics in St. Louis, the St. Louis Review is that reliable source. No other local source delivers, week after week, the news of our community — our parishes, schools, agencies and organizations that make this archdiocese a genuinely Catholic community.
As an archdiocesan publication, we take our mandate very seriously to present news and views consistent with Church teaching. Our stories reveal the Catholic Church’s beauty by telling the stories of our families, friends and fellow parishioners. Our Catholic approach means readers get the news in context with Church teaching so they can better live their faith daily.
Throughout the past year, the staff has told stories of perseverance and joy through the pandemic that shut down our churches and schools. We’ve photographed and written inspirational stories of everyday Catholics living their faith despite life’s struggles. We’ve connected the local Church with the Universal Church, keeping readers updated on what is happening in the Vatican and around the world.
We’ve continued to publish, even though our newsroom was closed in March and the postal service has struggled with delivery.
Our commitment to quality Catholic journalism is not always easy, nor does it come for free. We are totally self-funded, covering all expenses with subscriptions and advertising.
The staff at the St. Louis Review are professionals, trained and experienced in reporting for our Catholic community. Our editorial team brings more than 110 combined years of experience as Catholic journalists. Their knowledge and experience are invaluable.
Each year, we conduct our subscription campaign in the parishes. This year, the collection falls on the weekend of Jan. 16-17. Parish offering envelopes and digital platforms include a St. Louis Review option.
Every household is asked to contribute $35 toward their parish subscription to the Review. With 50 issues per year, that’s just 70 cents per edition. The paid subscription includes full access to the online edition.
We are grateful to our loyal readers and will continue to provide you with excellent Catholic news. We hope you will support us with your generosity.
