Green shoots in the Messenger

June 1, 2010 in General, News

messenger_01The Sacred Heart Messenger has the biggest circulation of any religious magazine in Ireland and the second highest of any magazine, outdone only by The RTE Guide! “And that’s in no small measure due to the large number of volunteer promoters who distribute the magazine monthly, through hail rain and snow,” says Marketing Manager Triona McKee. This June, the month of the feast of the Sacred Heart, special Masses for the promoters will be celebrated in every Province. And in Dublin, the Slí Eile Gospel Choir will provide the music. The Messenger has been significantly rebranded over the past two years, resulting in an increase in younger readers. Four new writers have joined the team this year, including well-known TV gardener Helen Dillon. Read below for a list of proposed Masses.
