Greensburg diocese newspaper changing to a monthly with more digital content
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.
