Stay informed to strengthen Christian voice

Did you know that more Christians are being persecuted for their faith in our times than ever before? Surprising but true.

It is our duty to oppose such injustice as Jesus taught us to stand up for the oppressed. The doctrine of the Catholic Church on social teaching also encourages us to commit ourselves to furthering the common good. To do so, we need to stay informed.

The mass media rarely covers religious news, but other sources exist. The Religious Information Service of Ukraine (RISU) provides news on all denominations in Ukraine. In Canada, Progress Ukrainian Catholic News, published by the Ukr. Cath. Eparchy of Winnipeg contains articles on religious topics and church affairs in Canada, Ukraine, and beyond. Logos, a journal published by the Sheptytsky Institute in Ottawa, offers an academic approach on issues in Eastern Christianity. The print and online editions of Catholic Insight keep readers informed on bioethical and educational issues. LifeSite News offers daily reports on the same. Convivium, is a new current affairs magazine focused on religion in politics.

Holy Apostles Institute is a new online catechetical formation offering in the Byzantine Catholic tradition.

TV and radio listeners can find informative programs on EWTN, the global Catholic network, and Salt and Light TV. Ancient Faith Radio provides online audio programs and podcasts on Orthodox Christianity around the world.

By staying informed we can defend and promote our faith and strengthen the Christian voice in all spheres of our life, be it personal, professional, educational or political.
