Invest in safeguarding the future of independent Catholic Journalism
Dear Herald Reader
The pandemic has hit the Herald hard as we have not been able to sell copies in churches since March 2020. We have had to rely on subscriptions and now need your support to keep providing the very best independent and morally rooted Catholic journalism.
We are inviting readers to support the Herald by investing in our future – especially the next generation – as the guardian of Catholic values at this critical time in the church’s history.
We are also appealing to readers to make a legacy or bequest to the Catholic Herald in their Will.
The Herald has been commentating on Vatican, church and religious affairs since 1888 and we think it’s more important than ever that both traditional and liberal views on the leading moral and political questions of our day are openly debated and discussed intelligently.
Never before has it been so important for the world’s Catholic community to have an authoritative voice that is not afraid to speak out, holding both lay and religious leaders to account, whilst also celebrating the riches of Catholic culture and liturgy.
Our new Herald Patron’s Fund needs to raise £250,000 ($300,000) which will be invested in standing up for Catholic values and social teaching. With fierce debate over subjects like the Latin Mass, euthanasia and abortion, our mission today is to safeguard traditional Catholic values and teaching at a time when the church is divided. We will also be sponsoring Catholic graduate trainees to work for the Herald in the UK, Rome and the US.
Over 130 years, the Herald has published such names as Evelyn Waugh, JRR Tolkien, GK Chesterton and Graham Greene. Today, as a world-leading conservative Catholic media voice (half our digital readers are from the US), we remain at the forefront of public debate publishing such writers and church leaders as Cardinal Nichols, Cardinal Pell, Antonia Fraser, Piers Paul Read and Sohrab Ahmari. As we expand internationally, thanks to new digital opportunities, we need investment to support the best journalism covering the Vatican, USA, Britain and maintain our correspondents and editors abroad.
Please join us on our mission to celebrate the intellectual and spiritual riches of Catholic faith and culture that has made us a bold and influential voice for over a century. By doing so you can help influence the future of the church in these challenging times.
Your contribution will also pay for Herald gift print magazine subscriptions to priests, seminaries, Catholic schools and colleges, care homes, religious care homes, hospitals, university and prison chaplaincies. Again and again, we hear that the monthly arrival of the Herald is something that people look forward to, especially the lonely. Our spiritually and intellectually uplifting content is intended to brighten lives, provide moral clarity and nourish souls.
For more significant contributions to the Herald Patron’s Fund (over £15,000), the opportunity exists to become a shareholder in the Herald (email [email protected]). To make a legacy or bequest to the Herald in your Will please, also email me.
