The Catholic Herald is a great medium to promote your business, organization, parish/community events, and more. The print circulation is approximately 23,000 -- higher than most paid local daily and weekly newspapers in Wisconsin. The paper is mailed weekly directly to the homes of Catholic families in eleven counties in south central and southwestern Wisconsin.

You can count on the Catholic Herald to be read by our subscribers and their family and friends. An impressive 79% have read all of the last four issues and 88% have read three of the last four. The Catholic Herald is the primary source relied upon for news about Catholic issues as well as diocesan information.

The paper also has a high pass-along rate. Within subscriber households, 31% have two or more readers of the paper, and 34% of our subscribers share the paper with another person.
