About the Catholic Sun

The Catholic Sun is the official news media serving the people of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse. We inform, educate and evangelize on local, national and international Catholic news, views and teachings.

The Sun was established in 1892 as a private publication. It was purchased for the diocese by Bishop Joseph O’Keefe in 1988. The Sun has since expanded to include a digital edition and website.

The Sun covers the seven counties of the diocese – Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego – and, beginning in September 2022,  publishes 26 print and digital issues per year, as well as digital and online edition updates. A subscription costs just $26 per year ($31 outside the diocese). The Sun’s website, thecatholicsun.com, is updated daily.
