Third birthday for ICN

 Independent Catholic News is now three years old. Many thanks to all the many people who have encouraged us in this project - with your messages, prayers, and generous contributions.

When we launched on May 4 2000, we only produced two updates a week. We now post up news sometimes several times a day and should be receiving our 200,000th visitor soon. Besides the news there's Saint of the Day, Sunday Reflection, Listings, Archives, Links pages and an e-mail service. We are also about to launch a regular movie review section - courtesy of SIGNIS, the World Catholic Association for Communication.

Independent Catholic News is run on an entirely voluntary basis. We have received some funding from donations, adverts and the e-mail subscription service, which have covered the bills. But as the site grows the costs are also increasing. We are asking for donations, from those who can afford it, (in particular larger groups and organisations) to enable us to continue, promote and develop the project.

Donations can be made on-line through the 'PayPal' service on our front page, or send us an e-mail for postal address details. We welcome your comments and advice. Please send news, letters, listings and links to: For more information about ICN see: 'About This Site' on our Home Page. Best wishes and prayers from Jo Siedlecka, and all at ICN.
