our new website. Readers who are familiar with The Wanderer know we have been
providing Catholic news and orthodox commentary for over 145 years in our weekly
print edition. Now we are introducing the online daily version of our print

to our flagship weekly print edition,
which is mailed every Friday or, if you want to
view it in its entirety online,
subscribe to the E-edition,
which is a replica of the print edition.
Our daily edition includes: a selection of

We encourage you to become a daily visitor to
our site. If you appreciate our site, tell your friends. As Catholics we must
band together to rediscover our faith and share it with the world if we are to
effectively counter a society whose moral culture seems to have no boundaries
and a government whose rapidly extending reach threatens to extinguish the
rights of people of faith to practice their religion (witness the HHS mandate).
Now more than ever, vehicles like The Wanderer are needed for clarification and
guidance on the issues of the day.
Catholic, conservative, orthodox, and loyal to the
Magisterium have been this journal’s hallmarks for five generations. God
willing, our message will continue well into this century and beyond.
President, The Wanderer Printing Co.
