San Francisco Archdiocese launches Spanish-language Catholic newspaper
Published: July 12, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO (CNS) -- The Archdiocese of San Francisco has launched San Francisco Catolico, a newspaper that will serve Hispanic Catholics in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties. Beginning July 15, it will be distributed at the 34 parishes in the archdiocese that celebrate Mass in Spanish. Bundles of the newspaper will be delivered to churches for distribution after Mass. The initial press run of 6,800 is estimated to provide a copy for nearly every Spanish Mass-going household. Published 24 times a year, the paper features 12 pages of advertising-supported content. Editorial content includes local news, features and photos, a local calendar of events, spirituality and opinion columns by local and national writers, Scripture readings for the two Sundays in each issue cycle, and national and world news from Catholic News Service. It also features news on topics of high interest to the Hispanic audience: immigration, education, health, family, and employment and the economy. The paper is produced by the staff of Catholic San Francisco, with Henry Quijano as part-time editorial coordinator. Quijano, a native of Madrid, Spain, is a veteran journalist with experience in the Hispanic press in Texas and California. San Francisco Catolico succeeds El Heraldo, a monthly paper that had been a longtime joint project of the archdiocese and the Oakland Diocese.
