In keeping with The Monitor’s established publication schedule, there will be only one issue in July.  The next issue of The Monitor will be July 25, and in addition to the usual array of news and information, the coming issue will include LIVES OF FAITH, the Diocese’s annual celebration of priests, religious and deacons who are marking special anniversaries in 2019. This 50-plus page, full-color magazine will feature in-depth interviews and special coverage of the priests who are marking their 25th and 50th anniversaries of ordination, as well as those who are retiring this year.

The Monitor will continue to publish local, national and world news, as well as many of its regular features on throughout the month of July. To read the latest installments of Father Garry Koch’s Scripture reflection, The Word, see the Our Faith section on the homepage.

We also invite readers to stay in touch with The Monitor on Facebook and Twitter, where we will continue to share fresh content daily.
