Catholic Church launches online weekly

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of Bangladesh launched its online version of Pratibeshi, the oldest Bengali language Catholic weekly, last Wednesday. Founded in 1940, the paper is distributed in 30 countries.

Pratibeshi (Neighbour) editor Father Joyanto Gomes said the online edition, "Allows many users to read our news even on the internet. As the world changes, we must upgrade.”

The online magazine will publish news about the Catholic Church, foreign news and feature cultural topics important to the Church of Bangladesh.

Pratibeshi would aim to promote Christ's message and the Church's teachings through the new media, raise spiritual, social, civil and economic awareness by telling ordinary people's everyday experiences; and push Church personnel to use new forms of communication.

The weekly is a member of SIGNIS, the World Catholic Association for Communication.
