How to subscribe to the Catholic Herald

Support Catholic journalism by signing up for web access and our weekly magazine

This week marks a huge moment in the 130-year history of the Catholic Herald as we launch the US edition of the magazine.

To coincide with the launch, our website has also undergone a redesign, bringing a fresh look and more content to our online platform. The website will also now be subject to a paywall – a move that will allow us to continue to bring you Catholic journalism of the highest quality.

Throughout our history, the Herald has broken some of the most important Catholic stories, including the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 – an exclusive we achieved by gambling that the pontiff would die immediately after we went to press. (Thankfully for our reputation, he did).

We have also been home to many esteemed and influential writers, including GK Chesterton, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene and JRR Tolkien. In this new era, the US edition of our magazine and the paywalled website will enable us to build on this rich heritage.

Readers can choose either a print and digital combined package or packages for print or digital only, available from our dedicated subscription services for US and UK/RoW residents.

Print subscribers receive a weekly copy of the Catholic Herald (either a US or UK edition), while digital subscribers have full access to our website, including all content from US and UK magazines, and our online archive.

See below for more information about our subscription packages and details on how our paywall works.

How the paywall works

• All of our content is behind the paywall.

• From January 2019, the number of free reads per week before the paywall is activated will be reduced.
