Nurturing faith is key element of
The Criterion’s mission

This week’s issue of The Criterion, which features our annual Vacation/Travel Supplement, is being mailed to all households in the archdiocese, including those that don’t normally receive the newspaper.

Why read The Criterion?

There are several benefits to subscribing to the archdiocese’s weekly newspaper, which serves as Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein’s primary evangelization tool. The archbishop and his staff understand that our Catholic weekly plays an important role in carrying on the mission of the Church in central and southern Indiana by informing, educating and evangelizing. Simply put, it can help each of us live our lives more fully as Catholics.

Our regular features, which include Archbishop Buechlein’s “Seeking the Face of the Lord” column, also educate people as they face the challenges to live their faith each day.

This week’s issue also presents a wonderful opportunity to build community. Summer is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for things to do, look no further than our archdiocesan parishes.

The Vacation/Travel Supplement includes a list of parish festivals being hosted throughout the summer. From Indianapolis to Troy, from Terre Haute to Lawrenceberg and everywhere in between, parishes invite everyone to come share in their heritage. Of course, you can rest assured that the festivals include good food, fun and fellowship.

No matter how diverse your household—whether it includes young children, teenagers or senior citizens—or your vocation in life—religious, clergy, single or married life—our goal is to nurture your faith each week.

To all of you who already subscribe to The Criterion, we thank you, and to those of you who don’t regularly receive it, we hope you will spend some time with this issue and consider receiving it each week.
