WHAT WE DO The Diocese of New Ulm’s Office of Communications coordinates communication between the bishop and/or his staff and the outside media. The office issues media releases and statements about the diocese and responds to media requests or inquiries. This office also obtains and schedules Catholic programming for public access television stations in nine communities in the diocese.

THE PRAIRIE CATHOLIC The Office of Communications in charge of the production of The Prairie Catholic which is mailed to over 23,000 registered Catholic households throughout the Diocese of New Ulm once a month, ten times a year (Sept. – June). This award-winning communication vehicle, in both print and online, shares in the mission of proclaiming Christ’s saving message by providing news, information, and education. The Prairie Catholic is a trusted source of information about the Church, and provides a connection and a sense of place for Catholics throughout the diocese’s 9,863 square miles. Its focus is on the Bishop’s priorities of evangelization, Catholic education, marriage and life issues, social concerns, catechesis, timely Catholic news, and diocesan and parish information. The newspaper is funded in-part by donations to the annual United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Catholic Communications Campaign held annually in May.
