Marist Messenger is closing

It is with great sadness that we write to inform our readers that the Marist Messenger is closing. The decision has been taken by the Society of Mary that this issue will be the last Marist Messenger. There are many reasons for the decision to close, especially the increasing cost of production, particularly postage; the difficulty in finding a new editor for the magazine and the decrease in subscriber numbers which has made the magazine financially unviable. Print magazines here in New Zealand and the world over have been facing similar challenges and many have closed. Sadly, the Messenger will join the rank of these casualties.

We understand that this news is difficult to hear and that many will be saddened by the demise of such a long-lived and popular magazine.

We give thanks for the 94 years of publication and the immense good that the magazine has done over these years. We are grateful for the support of you, all our readers over the years, for your interest and the letters of encouragement and even correction you have sent us. God bless all of you.
