Our Sunday Visitor celebrates
100th Anniversary in 2012
Our Sunday Visitor is celebrating our 100th year in 2012, and we want you to join us!
On May 5, 1912, our founder, Father (later Archbishop) John F. Noll published the first issue of Our Sunday Visitor newspaper, with a press run of 35,000 copies. His sweeping vision – and determination to fight the flood of anti-Catholic literature at the time – is the foundation of present-day Our Sunday Visitor. Today our company is:
Our celebration kicked off with an Open House to thank the Huntington, Indiana, community we’ve called home for a century, and opened our doors to all who visited and learned more about the Our Sunday Visitor story.
In September, we published a special 100th Anniversary Edition of OSV Newsweekly that highlights not only the history of the newspaper, but of Catholicism in the 21st century -- and beyond.
Read Greg Erlandson's article from The Priest (September 2012), 'Toward a Second Century', about Archbishop Noll's contributions to the Church and the mission of Our Sunday Visitor.
Our employees will enjoy special celebrations in our offices around the country, and we celebrated officially this September with the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Read Matthew Bunson's article on the Centennial Mass of Thanksgiving and Rededication and our Continuing the Legacy Symposium.
We welcome your comments, and extend a huge THANK YOU to our readers and customers for allowing us 100 years of serving the Catholic community.
