.- Catholic News Agency excitedly announced today new updates to the group’s website that they hope will better equip Catholics and Christians with the tools necessary to sift through today’s cultural minefield and better live out the Gospel in their everyday lives. Alejandro Bermudez, CNA’s editor in chief said that, “we want to provide our readers not only with the news but also with analysis from people on the ground who combine great knowledge in their fields with solid Catholic identity.”
Some of the new features, due to debut on July 26th will include bi-weekly columns on topics ranging from Teen Life, Catholics and Politics, ‘What women want’, Catholic singles, No-nonsense economics for Catholics, Book Reviews, and items on understanding and defending the Catholic Faith.
The list of columnists include seasoned scholars like Professor William R. Luckey, Chairman of the Political Science and Economics Department at Virginia’s Christendom College and a Middle School student from Colorado.
“With so much information in the mainstream media--much of it hostile to the Church--we want to try and give Catholics a filter with which to see the world through an authentically Catholic lens,” said Scott Powell, CNA’s U.S. Bureau Chief.
The news agency has also launched its new donate page, a highly-secure server on which readers can make on-line donations to the non-profit group. It can be found at: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/donation.php
