Let us ask the Holy Spirit to raise up courageous communicators and authentic witnesses to the truth, faithful to Christ’s mandate and enthusiastic for the message of the faith, communicators who will “interpret modern cultural needs, committing themselves to approaching the communications age … as a valuable time for the quest for the truth and for developing communion between persons and peoples” - Pope John Paul II
Since 1875, the diocesan newspaper of the Diocese of Providence (formerly Providence Visitor) has shared the local, national and international news of the Catholic Church with Rhode Island Catholics. With a new philosophy that values the importance of local news of the Rhode Island Catholic Community, Rhode Island Catholic, encourages and welcomes your news.
The value and success of Rhode Island Catholic is dependent upon you, our community partners. Without your news and information, the newspaper would not be able to provide news and stories of interest to the readership of one of the state’s oldest newspapers.
