OSV AND GLOBAL CATHOLIC MEDIA NETWORK ALETEIA PARTNER TO PROMOTE THE BEAUTY OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH DIGITALLY
This new venture allows OSV the opportunity to broaden its audience, content, and methods of delivery by bringing the Aleteia platform to the United States and beyond. The Aleteia digital platform includes web (aleteia.org), email newsletters, social media, smartphone and desktop notifications, and video distribution. Across all of its editions, Aleteia serves over 20 million monthly users, the majority in the 25-44 age range. Through this joint effort, Aleteia will have the opportunity to connect through OSV’s extensive distribution network which includes more than 90% of the Catholic parishes and every diocese in the United States.
“While this new partnership is exciting for both OSV and Aleteia, it’s most exciting for the Church,” states Joe Wikert, OSV Publishing President. “OSV plans to shepherd this resource in a way that all can benefit by bringing together the rich tradition of Our Sunday Visitor with Aleteia’s digital platform to present the beauty of the Catholic Faith to audiences in English and Spanish.”
“This partnership with OSV is a unique opportunity to grow our audience and develop our services in English and Spanish, the languages in which more than half of all Catholics around the world are praying,” declares Pierre-Marie Dumont, CEO of Aleteia. “With over a century of experience, OSV is bringing the vibrant dynamism and the creativity of the Catholic Church in the USA to our worldwide evangelization project.”
