Last minute gift idea? A special price on The Catholic Herald web edition!

Catholic HeraldThe other day I mentioned in another entry that The Catholic Herald, the UK’s best Catholic weekly, had a special price right now for their web edition.

Last minute gift idea for a person who may be hard to buy for?  A good source for yourself?

At the time of this writing, The Catholic Herald has lowered its web subscription rate from 38 (US $58.80) to 10 (US $15.50).

You get the entire newspaper, not just the items on their webpage.

I don’t live in England, but I find what is going on there interesting.  In a sense, they are a few years ahead of the US in the culture wars.  Catholics there have a tougher row to hoe in the public square… or should I say ‘common’?  It is interesting to see, for example, how they publish side by side with the Ordinary Form, the Extraordinary Form liturgical calendar notes each week along with places and schedules where you can find it.

Another advantage is that you don’t have to wait for it to come in the mail. If you are not in the UK that takes a while.  And it has been a growing problem, because postal rates are climbing for small publications.

And you have the whole thing archived online: less clutter.  They have an archive you can access going back to 2003.

Go to and enter the promo code: CHPROMO

(Too bad they don’t have a FRZ promo code!)

I think very highly of the paper and the people who put it together. Please give The Catholic Herald some support.  Good Catholic publications need our support.

    To save people the time of finding the right link to subscribe, here’s a link directly to the subscription page for the Catholic Herald digital edition:

  2. As an added bonus, the company that handles the publication of the electronic edition, Exact Editions, has an iPad app called Exactly. This allows iPad owners to download the current and back issues of their subscriptions, such as the Catholic Herald, and read them offline. Very handy for traveling or those who commute via carpool or train.

    I am subscribed to The Remnant and the Latin Mass magazines but I thought I’d try this also. The price is right to give it a shot. A Blessed Christmas to you Father and everyone here.
