Our final newspaper

Dear Readers,

This week marks the final issue of The Long Island Catholic as a weekly diocesan newspaper.
The new, monthly Long Island Catholic magazine will arrive in your homes for the first time in late November. I hope all TLIC readers will welcome this new publication, give us your feedback on its format and many new features, and then subscribe to the new magazine by placing your envelope in the special collection at your parish on Long Island Catholic Sunday, December 1.   

I want to thank all of you, on behalf of all TLIC staff, past and present, for your faithful readership, for your input — whether it was praise or constructive criticism — and for your support during The Long Island Catholic’s 50 years of service to the Church of Long Island.

— Rick Hinshaw, editor
