Newly revamped Colorado Springs Diocese newspaper resurrected

.- Last month, the Diocese of Colorado Springs, CO officially re-launched its diocesan newspaper, the Colorado Catholic Herald--a tool that they hope will provide more opportunity for sharing the gospel with the state’s population.

Bishop Michael Sheridan was on hand as the newly revamped paper was unveiled at a ceremony last month at the Colorado Springs chancery.

Bill Howard, the paper’s editor boasted that, "At a time when several diocesan newspapers are being downgraded to monthlies or magazines or are completely shut down, Bishop Sheridan has taken the bold step to revamp the paper and make it a stronger tool of communication for the faithful of the Colorado Springs Diocese."

The diocese noted that they wanted the name "Colorado Catholic Herald" to better reflect broader readership than just the immediate Colorado Springs area.

The first edition of the colorful new paper featured a large, front page picture of youth from the diocese at last summer’s World Youth Day celebration in Cologne.

Likewise, new "Gospel of Life" and Entertainment sections, as well as an opinion page and several popular columnists, will appear in the bi-weekly publication.

The diocese noted that the Herald currently has a circulation 28,000 with big plans for growth.
