Facing financial challenges, New York's Diocese of Rockville Centre is converting its weekly newspaper The Long Island Catholic into a subscription-based monthly magazine, Bishop William Murphy of Rockville Centre announced Oct. 2.
Sean Dolan, director of communications, said the diocese hopes that readers will "enjoy the new diocesan magazine and support it enthusiastically."
He said the magazine will be a resource for faith formation for the diocese's Catholic families.
"It will be something people will be proud to leave out, pass along and share. In this year of faith, we need to evangelize. And we think this new magazine will help in that regard."
