Our Mutually Shared Vision, the diocesan pastoral plan, continually challenges us to keep evaluating the best means and practices in reaching today’s world for sharing the Gospel and serving the Church’s mission.  Due to many factors identified over the past several years and deliberations initiated prior to the pandemic, as well as these recent months, a crossroads was reached.  Like a few dioceses and regional newspress, The Catholic Key will cease operations.  All diocesan digital communication will continue, and new print media will be explored in the future to communicate the local Church’s mission and message as the entire Communications Department is being re-envisioned.

We are grateful for the dedication and long term loyalty of the staff of the Diocesan Communications Office and The Catholic Key. We hope that you will join us in celebrating them and their contributions over the last three decades.
