Peace and all good!

Since June 1, 1893, St. Anthony Messenger has been an outreach effort of the Franciscan Friars of Cincinnati, Ohio. Although the medium and the message may have evolved, the nation’s most popular Catholic magazine is still a trustworthy resource delivered in the popular and family-friendly style of St. Francis of Assisi.

We seek to remain current, readable, and on top of topics that concern Catholics and Christians today.
