We are in the final hours of NCR’s 4th annual webathon. Soon we’ll be tallying the last of our online pledges. Right now we are a couple thousand dollars short of our overall goal. One last small surge of giving from you our most loyal readers would put us over. We are so close, it would be a shame not to make the $100,000 goal.
I don’t have much else to tell you. You obviously value NCR or you wouldn’t be visiting here at this time of day. You know that the kind of reporting that we do – on the ground, among the people reporting – is expensive and you know you can’t find that kind of Catholic journalism in too many other outlets. Brian Roewe was with the Nation Federation of Priests Councils in Reno this week. John Allen was in Rome. This week we covered stories with datelines from Oakland to Long Island. If you value that reporting, please donate now.
Maybe you like our commentary, or at least parts of our commentary, because we have a fairly wide representation: Michael Sean Winters, Colman McCarthy, Sr. Joan Chittister, Jamie Manson, Phyllis Zagano, Fr. John Dear S.J., Fr. Peter Daly, Eugene Cullen Kennedy, Melissa Musick Nussbaum, Mike Sweitzer-Beckman, April Gutierrez, Sr. Camille D'Arienzo. Any single one of these writers would be worth a $10 or $20 donation. We give all to you for the same price. If you value that, please donate now.
No donation is too small. NCR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
I will leave you with some words from NCR editor at large Tom Roberts:
