For the past twenty years, the Catholic League published a newsletter describing the organization’s events. As we begin our third decade, the Catholic League will change from publishing a newsletter to publishing a journal. Why the change? A newsletter is primarily a house organ, a publication that details internal matters. But Catalyst has a broader focus: we seek not only to disseminate news of League activity, we seek to impact on the world of ideas, and hence feel it more appropriate to be recognized as a journal.
