Northwest Catholic magazine and Northwest Catholic Online are the official magazine and news site for the Archdiocese of Seattle. The mission of both is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to Catholics in Western Washington to teach, inspire, and form disciples who know the Lord and live their faith to the full. 

Launched in September 2013, Northwest Catholic evolved out of The Catholic Northwest Progress, a more than 100-year-old newspaper, which published its last issue on June 27, 2013.

The magazine is published 10 times a year with combined issues in January/February and July/August. Northwest Catholic Online is updated daily with fresh news, features and multimedia content not found in the magazine. You can also find Northwest Catholic on FacebookTwitterInstagram and YouTube.

The Archdiocese of Seattle's Office of Communications produces Northwest Catholic. Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain is its publisher.
