How The Voice gets to you

Every registered Catholic household in the Diocese of Oakland is entitled to receive The Catholic Voice, either via a print edition or online.

A plan approved in 1968, and modified a few times since, takes into consideration the ability of each parish to support this adult education program. The plan was approved by a committee of pastors, the Senate of Priests and Consultors, and has been reaffirmed several times since. The Voice agreed to not share its subscriber list with any other entity, nor to solicit parishioners for funds directly.

Each parish pays a small percentage of the average of its last three years of assessable income for The Voice. The number of subscribers is not related to the parish assessment. Parishes less well-off financially pay less than those better off.

Those not registered with a parish within the diocese can purchase a subscription for $12 a year; for those living outside the diocese, due to higher postal costs, a subscription is $22 a year.

Parishioners can help their parish defray its cost by donating once a year at a special collection in October.
