App Description

The fascinating Catholic Life magazine, launched in 1995, is the only national Catholic full colour glossy monthly in the UK. The magazine aims to explore, in depth, both contemporary and historical aspects of Catholic Faith, even documenting unusual or forgotten stories, written by a selection of excellent Catholic writers and historians. Catholic Life helps the reader to explore their faith in an engaging and entertaining way, allowing them to put their beliefs into a context for everyday life.

From modern day exhibitions and travel destinations to ancient monasteries and Saints, Catholic Life has something of interest for everyone. Its articles can run from a single page to a serial over several issues. All content is supported by beautiful full colour imagery.

During your subscription you can sync back issues to your device. These will remain in place if your subscription expires, unless your device removes them (for example when running low on disk space). Re-downloading issues requires a current subscription.
