Greensburg diocese newspaper changing to a monthly with more digital content

Recent covers of the Catholic Accent, the now-monthly newspaper of the Diocese of Greensburg.

As part of a larger restructuring of its communications department, the Diocese of Greensburg is changing the format of its bi-weekly newspaper to a monthly.

Beginning with the Sept. 20 issue, the Catholic Accent will be published monthly on the third Thursday of each month.

The newspaper, which has been in circulation since 1961, also will include a digital version with clickable video components and an enhanced social media presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the diocese said. An online version of the newspaper has been available since 2008.

The new communications initiative will be launched in January.

The newspaper will continue to be mailed to nearly 40,000 homes in Westmoreland, Indiana, Fayette and Armstrong counties. A special, quarterly edition also will be published, along with an electronic version that will appear on the diocesan website.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
