  Archdiocese launches Detroit Catholic online news service

DETROIT - The Archdiocese of Detroit today has launched a digital news service designed to broaden its storytelling reach and to provide engaging and timely news coverage of its local missionary activities.

Detroit Catholic offers readers daily, multimedia coverage of parishes, schools and the many life-giving ministries throughout the archdiocese. In addition, readers have access to national and global articles about the Church, and can sign up to receive news summaries via email each weekday, week or month.

“Our Archdiocese is responding to God’s clear call for us to unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan and beyond,” said Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron. “With Detroit Catholic, our prayer is to expand upon our efforts to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the faithful through stories that inspire and inform readers as they grow into joyful missionary disciples.”

The new website ( and social media channels (@detroitcatholic on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) are updated daily with content from local producers, columnists and partners reporting on Catholic news and events both locally and across the globe. It launches today with dozens of new articles, including a profile of a man whose faith inspired him to lose 75 pounds and run his first marathon this year, a story about Detroit Catholic Central’s Rosary-themed workouts, and extensive wire coverage of Pope Francis.

Detroit Catholic represents the next chapter in storytelling for the archdiocese after the closing of its bi-weekly newspaper, The Michigan Catholic this summer. Detroit Catholic will continue providing the award-winning coverage and feature stories readers have come to expect, now with increased frequency and more in-depth coverage.

“We’re very excited to launch the next phase of our publishing efforts in the Archdiocese of Detroit,” said Michael Stechschulte, editor of Detroit Catholic. “It is our hope that Detroit Catholic continues and expands upon the tradition of excellence set by The Michigan Catholic newspaper by keeping Catholic leaders, laity and faithful informed about the latest issues of the day and inspired to proclaim the good news of Jesus in their hearts, homes and communities.”
