Casting a Wider .Net

Many, if not most, Register readers know that this publication is part of a small family of Catholic publishing efforts under the banner of Circle Media. Its siblings are Faith & Family magazine, of which I also serve as publisher, and Circle Press, our books division.

There’s no centralized Circle Media presence on the Internet, but each of these three works maintains its own website. NCRegister.com, FaithandFamilyLive.com and CirclePress.org combine to help Circle Media serve a wide demographic of Catholic readers.

Which brings me to some tidings of great growth. I’m delighted to welcome Catholic.net, a powerful, popular — and multilingual — Web presence, to the Circle Media family.

So it is that, despite the well-publicized challenges facing the publishing industry, Circle Media is holding its own and then some.

We like to think the Holy Spirit has something to do with our growth, our vitality and, God willing, the continued growth of our service to you and the Church.
