Voice editor to retire
Monica Clark, editor of The Catholic Voice for the past 24 years, has announced her plans to retire by the end of the year. A search for her replacement has already begun, said Mike Brown, diocesan communications director.

Clark, 67, began her career in Catholic communications in 1970 as assistant to the editor of The Southern Cross, diocesan newspaper in San Diego. She also served as communications director for Catholic Community Services of San Diego and for the San Diego County Ecumenical Conference.

A native San Franciscan, she returned to the Bay Area in 1979 to attend the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley and joined the communications department of the Oakland Diocese the following year. In 1981, she became associate editor of The Catholic Voice. Now-retired Oakland Bishop John S. Cummins appointed her editor in 1986.

During her tenure at The Voice, Clark was instrumental in bringing together the Archdiocese of San Francisco, the Diocese of Sacramento and the Oakland Diocese to jointly publish El Heraldo Catolico, a monthly newspaper for the area’s large Hispanic population.

She has received several writing awards from the Catholic Press Association.
