Coming in September – Our New Magazine
As you will have seen by now, The Southern Cross will relaunch as a magazine in late September — in print and digitally.
We are very excited about the magazine, which will sell for only R30, and we are certain that many Catholics will be interested in this new publication with a proud history.
And for parishes and sodalities and organisations who sell The Southern Cross magazine in their communities we have more good news:
For every magazine sold, we give a commission of R5,00!
Of course we are aware that nobody knows when parishes can return to holding their full schedule of Masses. But we could not delay the launch of The Southern Cross magazine any further — the alternative was to close the publication down altogether.
So we need help in the parishes and sodalities to make sure the printed magazine gets into people’s hands. This is a matter of keeping The Southern Cross alive!
We are asking parishes to stock The Southern Cross magazine, and make it known to parishioners through their various channels of communication, like Facebook and WhatsApp: to spread the word about the magazine and to encourage parishioners to order theirs.
They could fetch it from your parish office while we wait for Masses to resume, or maybe a kind parishioner might drop copies off at the homes of those who can’t or shouldn’t come out.
Or parishes could appoint one of their ministries (like the ushers) or sodalities or SVP to take charge of making sure that all parishioners who would like the magazine will get it.
Maybe even YOU might volunteer to get together a group of people from your parish to make sure there’ll be a Catholic magazine in as many Catholic homes as possible.
The possibilities to help keep The Southern Cross alive are endless!
Is the magazine the end of Catholic news? Of course not: our website and Facebook page will continue to bring the latest news.
And what will feature in the magazine? Well, an array of articles relating to all things Catholic: faith and society, interviews, personalities, burning questions, travel, prayer, millennials, family, education, spiritual reflections, pull-out poster of a Saint of the Month, as well as fun stuff like the popular crossword, wordsearch, a trivia quiz, and much, much more…
We are taking orders already so that we can get the magazine to you by the beginning of October.
Parishes and sodalities/organisations/shops can order copies for sale by emailing email@example.com or calling Pamela on 083 233-1956.
Remember, the cover price is R30, including VAT and we are offering R5 to the parish as commission for every copy sold. You will not be charged for any unsold copies!
The future of our Southern Cross is in your hands! PLEASE help us get the new magazine out there.
