Catholic Newspaper Serves Boston Latinos

May 06, 2000|Associated Press

BOSTON — Borrowing an idea from the Roman Catholic archdioceses of Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C., the Boston archdiocese has launched a Spanish-language newspaper.

Catholic officials hope the monthly La Vida Catolica will help stem conversions to Protestantism and help the church connect with the approximately 300,000 to 500,000 Latinos in the Boston area.

The archdiocese is printing 20,000 copies of La Vida Catolica to be distributed in 36 parishes with Spanish-language Masses.
