About The Michigan Catholic

A publication of the Archdiocese of Detroit since 1872

The Michigan Catholic is the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Detroit, and with the archdiocese, it exists for a single reason: To share Christ in and through the Church. Founded in 1872 as the “Western Home Journal,” The Michigan Catholic is the second-oldest newspaper in the state of Michigan and covers Catholic news and events of interest to the 1.3 million Catholics in southeast Michigan, covering Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, St. Clair, Lapeer and Monroe counties — along with national, international and Vatican news.

In addition to news coverage, The Michigan Catholic also seeks to inform and inspire, offering faith-building resources to help readers better know Jesus Christ and to better serve God and neighbor.

Funded entirely through subscriptions and advertising revenue, The Michigan Catholic depends on the loyalty and generosity of its readers to help reach our fellow Catholics in Metro Detroit with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
