I received the following email from Pewsitter. This seems like a very worthwhile project. Just select a diocese at the top of the webpage by clicking on "Diocesan news". I strongly hope that some of my readers will suggest news and help

The Email: is a unique Catholic news web site that was launched earlier this year. We are based in the U.S. and the preponderance of news on the site is from the U.S, we do feature Catholic related news from around the world.

The news on the site comes from two sources. The main source is from the conventional secular and Catholic press. We scour the news every day and put on Pewsitter those stories about the Catholic Church, faith, religion and the important moral and spiritual struggles of the day.

The second news source is the Catholic lay faithful. The concept behind the site is to enlist an army of "pewsitters" to be the eyes and ears for Pewsitter - hence the name. By submitting newsworthy items to Pewsitter, the laity can help shape and influence the Church and be a powerful force for positive change.

Pewsitter's initial focus will be on the national and international news on its home page. Its mid term objective is it to feature the Catholic news of the day within each of the 189 Catholic dioceses throughout the U.S

We would very much appreciate your assistance in getting the word out about Pewsitter. Here are several ways in which you can help us:

Place a link to our site, from your site, in a prominent place

Send an email to any opt-in email lists that you might have, encouraging other
faithful Catholics to go to the site and to begin to use it.

Volunteer to assist us with this endeavor

Keep us in your prayers.

Why does include non-Catholic news links? Especially secular newspaper links?
