A column by Father Eugene Hemrick on why Catholics stop attending Mass is getting well-deserved attention in the blogosphere, but no one knows that it’s ours! Actually, we’re not that bothered by isolated instances like this. Besides, the original post of the column came on the site of the Catholic Times in Springfield, Ill., one of our clients.
This also serves as a reminder that we don’t just produce news stories. We also provide our publishing clients with a variety of products, including columns that enliven the Catholic press. It’s just one more indication that Catholic News Service is your prime source for news, photos, graphics, columns and documentation on the church in the modern world.
