Championing the Catholic Church for over a century
The year was 1912, and Fr. John Francis Noll saw his beloved Catholic church under siege. Anti-Catholic sentiment was rampant in the United States at that time, and many groups were working to spread misinformation about the Church, creating an atmosphere of mistrust and even fear. The young, daring, and resourceful parish priest knew he needed to defend his beloved church. A first step in defending the Faith was the purchase of a printing press in the small town of Huntington, Indiana. The first edition of Our Sunday Visitor, a national weekly Catholic newspaper, came out on May 5, 1912, and began to form and inform millions of Catholics about the truth and beauty of the Catholic faith.
As Father Noll’s influence grew, he added many products and services to help parishes and dioceses in their missions, and the impact is felt even today. He listened to the needs of those in the Church and developed solutions for those needs. His mission as founder of Our Sunday Visitor was to show Catholics that the best way to renew families, communities, the nation, and the world, was to live the Catholic Faith.
