The Catholic Telegraph
The Catholic Telegraph is the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Founded in 1831 and continuous to the present day, its original mission was explain and defend Catholic teachings against her detractors. The second Catholic newspaper in the United States, the Telegraph has expanded its mission to report on growth and activities within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, parish life, ministries of the Church, church councils, American and worldwide politics, apologetics, and literary contributions. Regularly used by scholars and historians, The Catholic Telegraph is a treasure trove of local, national, and worldwide news, both within the Catholic Church and to a more broad interest.
