Last print edition for WA Catholic newspaper

Last print edition

Western Australia's Catholic newspaper, The Record, Australia's oldest weekly newspaper, will publish its final print edition tomorrow, reports AAP in Yahoo7.

Perth Archbishop Timothy Costelloe said the decision to close the paper, which was established in 1874, was reached after a five-month review with stakeholders following a protracted decline in subscriptions.

'Change is sometimes difficult and there will be many people who will be sorry to see The Record in this present form no longer appear each week in our churches,' Archbishop Costelloe said.

'If our goal is to use the media to share the message of Jesus, we must try new methods and set out in new directions.'

The Record will be replaced by a monthly magazine as well as a weekly electronic newsletter that will be emailed to parishes.
