The Southern Cross



The Southern Cross is the newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of San Diego.

The Southern Cross Newspaper

Founded in 1912 as an independent Catholic publication, it became the official diocesan newspaper in April 1937, at the request of San Diego’s first bishop, Charles F. Buddy.

The 28-page print edition of The Southern Cross is published on the fourth Wednesday of each month. It includes a mixture of diocesan, national and international reporting, providing both a local and global perspective on Church news. Each issue also includes media reviews and insightful commentary by nationally-syndicated Catholic columnists.

Through both its print edition and its Internet presence, The Southern Cross assists the Local Church in its teaching and pastoral mission by: informing the faithful about the life and work of the Church throughout the diocese; offering news and information which will foster unity with the Church throughout the world; and instructing the faithful regarding authentic Catholic teaching and practice.
