MEDIA ADVISORY, Jan. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- On New Year's Day, California Catholic Daily, an independent Catholic newspaper, went online on the worldwide web at www.calcatholic.com.
California Catholic Daily is the successor to four monthly print newspapers: San Diego News Notes, Los Angeles Catholic Mission, San Francisco Faith and the Spanish-language La Cruz de California. The monthly print editions ceased publication at the end of November, and were merged into a single daily digital newspaper, which published its first issue online on Jan. 1, 2007.
Editorial content of the new digital paper will be updated every day, 365 days a year. The California Catholic Daily website also features free classified ads, a free calendar section, a blog entitled "Notes from a Cultural Madhouse," and a regular column on day-to-day pro-life activities called "News from the Trenches." The digital newspaper also has a section in Spanish, "Noticias en Español," and offers display advertising with links to the advertiser's website address.
The mission statement of California Catholic Daily, says, in part: "The Christian communicator in particular has a prophetic task, a vocation: to speak out against the false gods and idols of the day – materialism, hedonism, consumerism, narrow nationalism... holding up for all to see a body of moral truth based on human dignity and rights... and unconditional respect for all human life from conception to natural death."
"As time goes on, we hope to make our site 'must reading' for anyone interested in the ongoing culture war in California – the battle to save innocents from abortion, to protect the family, to uphold the sanctity of marriage, to remain faithful to Catholic values in a very hostile secular environment," said Bob McPhail, editor of the site. "We refer to ourselves as 'faithful on the Left Coast.'"
