Associates Campaign

The Associate’s Campaign is an integral support to The Southern Cross ensuring that it continues its apostolic outreach, developing the means of transmitting our Catholic values in the new forms of media and safeguarding its future in these uncertain economic times. The Bishops of Southern Africa give their support to the Catholic Media of our region. The Southern Cross is the only Catholic monthly magazine and so it is crucial in bringing Catholic news and thought to the People of God. Without it, an important Catholic voice would be lost. This is particularly true as we live in times of diverse media delivered from many platforms. We have to make our voice heard among the myriad of voices ensuring that our message is not distorted or taken out of context.
May God bless you. Thank you for your support.
