Publishing and communications for dioceses
Catholic dioceses have a long history of publishing news and information "from a Catholic perspective." That is important. However, with fewer than 24% of Catholics attending Mass each week, diocesan publications must put evangelization first. Why would Catholics care about Catholic news if they don’t care about being Catholic? FAITH Catholic, the nation's largest publisher of Catholic magazines, works with dioceses across the nation — large and small — to help them create powerful publications that reach every registered Catholic family. These magazines typically are the only Catholic content in the home, which is why they are crucial for inspiring and forming everyday Catholics.
Like all organizations, dioceses need to apply principles of marketing to successfully reach their target audiences. Whether it's Catholic Charities programs, Catholic school enrollment, discernment programs, evangelization initiatives or other ministries, the tools employed through marketing help people know about and participate in the good things you are doing in your diocese. Integrated marketing services from FAITH Catholic help you create strong messages and deliver them directly to your target audiences through a variety of channels. We help you define and measure your goals, use your precious resources wisely, and most importantly, reach people in your diocese.
Dioceses across the country are working diligently to address the difficult issues that have plagued the Church in recent years. Catholic Strategies is a service of FAITH Catholic that brings to bear our team's extensive experience in crisis management and strategic communications for dioceses seeking to restore the trust of the faithful. Our purpose is to help dioceses assess their current status, create integrated strategic communications plans, train and support diocesan staff, and develop response assets.
Serving the Church by serving these clients
“La Fe, the magazine of the Diocese of Laredo, plays a vital role in our communications and evangelization efforts. ... When the faithful were asked, “What does the diocese do well?” , they overwhelming responded by lauding the efforts of La Fe magazine. No other diocesan ministry ranked higher … La Fe supplements Catholic teachings with practical columns and vignettes, evangelizing the reader, who is empowered to share the faith with others. The magazine becomes a cost-effective way to be a content evangelist, with an appealing and contemporary product that has a long shelf life.”

“This outreach is invaluable. It’s a way to evangelize, catechize, and promote the Church in a beautiful, attractive format. What an amazing product for evangelization for all ages. … When I’m out and about in the archdiocese, I hear wonderful stories of what people have read in the magazine or chatting about an article they liked best. FAITH helps all of us to be great evangelists.”
Archdiocese of St. Louis
