Much of The Catholic Herald’s content – letters, reviews, news, extra comment and features – is not available online.
This week, Scott P Richert urges readers not to accept the myth that Halloween is a pagan festival; Mark Greaves interviews a Sudanese bishop who believes civil war may erupt in his country; Sister Janet Fearns salutes a medical missionary who has worked in east Africa for 40 years; and Fr Anthony Symondson hails a brilliant book on Nicolaus Pevsner, an architectural historian “with the spirit of an ant”. Plus, Stuart Reid ponders Disneyland – the world’s number one pilgrimage destination.
Having been unable to sell in churches for well over a year due to the pandemic, we are now inviting readers to support the Herald by investing in our future. We have been a bold and influential voice in the church since 1888, standing up for traditional Catholic culture and values.
Please join us on our 130 year mission by supporting us. We are raising £250,000 to safeguard the Herald as a world-leading voice in Catholic journalism and teaching. For more information from our chairman on contributing to the Herald Patron's Fund, click here
