Our Sunday Visitor turns 100
CWN - May 03, 2012
The most popular national Catholic newspaper in the United States is celebrating its centenary.
Founder by the future Archbishop John Francis Noll, Our Sunday Visitor now has a circulation of 50,000--down from 500,000 four decades ago.
“In general, what is happening in the Catholic press parallels a lot of the trends in the larger world,” said publisher Greg Erlandson, commenting on the challenges facing Catholic print media.
“We’re linked back to Archbishop Noll’s vision to form Catholics and inform Catholics and are operating in whatever the appropriate medium of the day.”
