Every Tuesday evening, subscribers will get an email to notify them that the new issue is available. Readers can bookmark, share or print favorite articles or columns and have searchable access to all issues from 2002 to the present. Subscriptions are automatically set up for three years.

In announcing the free digital subscriptions, Bishop Anthony B. Taylor said having more readers to Arkansas Catholic will help reach a goal of “missionary transformation” in the Church.

“One of my most valuable vehicles for evangelization is our award-winning Arkansas Catholic newspaper. We are one of the smallest dioceses in the country to be blessed with a weekly diocesan newspaper, which enables us to provide you much information about our faith and the life of the Church in a timely way,” he wrote in a letter distributed in bulletins Nov. 23-24.

In making the decision, Bishop Taylor said the print version of the newspaper will continue for those who prefer a mailed copy. The subscription fee for the print version will help the diocese cover the postage and printing costs.

To register for a free account, visit or call (501) 664-0125.
