A note from Danielle:

As a writer, editor, and longtime fan of Catholic Digest (I have fond memories of curling up with a cup of tea and the latest issue as a teenager years ago), I am honored to be here.


With this re-launch issue in March, you will be able to see our new look, new size, and new content but it is my hope that you will see some old things too. As we begin our 76th year, there is no doubt that Catholic Digest has earned a well-respected place in history, and I am excited to be a part of it. It is my goal to respect and preserve the tradition of Catholic Digest, even as we adapt and change to better serve the needs of today's readers.


Catholic life is uniquely challenging, but also uniquely joyful. I pray that the new Catholic Digest will be a useful tool for you and a means by which we encourage and support one another in the joyfully challenging, important work of faith and family living.
