Sophia Institute Press acquires Catholic Exchange
Sophia Institute Press acquires Catholic Exchange

.- Sophia Institute Press has announced its acquisition of the Catholic Exchange web portal, a move intended to create a multi-platform media company dedicated to the “new evangelization.”

“I am tremendously grateful to Sophia Institute Press for providing a stable platform from which Catholic Exchange can grow,” said Catholic Exchange president Harold Fickett, who will continue as Catholic Exchange’s editor-in-chief. “Those who have supported us can now look forward to their efforts bearing fruit for Christ and his Kingdom in the years to come.”

The New Hampshire-based publisher of Catholic classics and contemporary fiction is the publishing arm of Thomas More College in Merrimack, New Hampshire and of Holy Spirit College in Atlanta, Georgia.

Catholic Exchange, based in Atlanta, launched in 2001. Every weekday it features news stories, opinion columns, blog posts and podcasts about the relevance of Jesus Christ to the problems of everyday life. Its website reports thousands of daily visitors.

The web portal announced the acquisition in a Nov. 16 message to supporters.

Thomas More College president William Fahey, who oversees Sophia Institute Press’ day-to-day operations, said the publisher and Catholic Exchange complement each other.

“We look forward, for example, to the use of Sophia’s books as the basis of certificate programs in biblical studies, theology, spiritual formation, canon law and other subjects that will be offered through Catholic Exchange,” Fahey explained.

Gareth Genner, president of Holy Spirit College and chairman of the board of Sophia Institute Press, also praised the move.

“We expect great things from the synergy of the Press and Catholic Exchange,” he said.
