La Civilta Cattolica in English is the fruit of a partnership between its Rome based editors and managers and the Asian Catholic news and feature service, UCA News.
For La Civilta Cattolica, the English edition is one of three versions of the publication – the other two are in Spanish and French respectively – launched at the time the 4000th edition in Italian was published (9 February, 2017).
It is in the tradition of Jesuit publications across the world and in many languages that provide a venue for Christian faith and the cultures it is planted in to engage and interact.
La Civilta Cattolica is a venerable publication of the Italian Jesuits given to them to publish by Pope Pius IX. It is now available in all digital forms and is a presence on social media platforms.
UCA News (UCAN) is a digital multilingual and multimedia news and feature publisher at the service of the Church in Asia. Its reports cover topics of interest and relevance to the Church’s mission in Asia.
UCAN also has the editing and production skills to render in English information created in other languages, most often Asian languages. It also has the marketing capacity to reach the Church worldwide and has readers in 180 countries.
The partnership between La Civilta Cattolica is founded on both intersecting missions and also capacities that complement each other.
