As a publication of the Catholic Church, The Valley Catholic takes its mandate from the Decree on the Instruments of Social Communication (Vatican Council II) to be engaged in the mission of the Church itself.

The diocesan press participates in the Church’s mission of evangelization and formation. It provides information and responsible opinion, and a forum for dialogue by implementing the highest standards of professional journalism. At times, it is obliged to correct distortions or misrepresentations of Catholic life, faith or institution which may appear in the secular media.

The Valley Catholic reflects the mission of the Local Church to inform diverse Catholics in faith, Church and service, in the spirit of charity and justice.  To subscribe for a print copy of The Valley Catholic Online, click here or click Subscribing on the left nav bar.
