The Majellan, which has long been a favourite with many Catholic families in Australia and New Zealand, has been available in print for 71 years. Now, in addition to the print version, The Majellan Magazine app for phone and tablets can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
This digital edition includes all the regular features of the print version, as well as many enhancements, including videos, audio and links to other relevant websites.
Majellan chief executive Tony Biviano said the launch into the digital age is an exciting development for The Majellan and “helps us reach a new younger audience”.
“The new app is only the start of the development of our digital offerings,” Mr Biviano said. “We have a new podcast called Figuring out Families in production, as well as many new resources coming on our new website www.majellan.media.
“The Majellan has been a favourite for many years with its valuable advice on family issues, personal stories and interesting articles. From now on it is available as a print and digital magazine.”
The Majellan was started by Redemptorist priests in Ballarat in the 1940s. Production moved to the Melbourne suburb of Brighton in 1963.
