SEAC Online

In his message released on Jan. 24, Pope Benedict XVI called for a greater Christian presence online in the midst of the “vast cultural transformation” caused by the digital age. New technologies, he said, are “giving birth to a new way of learning and thinking, with unprecedented opportunities for establishing relationships and building fellowship.”

The Southeast Alaska Catholic, official newspaper for the Diocese of Juneau, Alaska is published from the Office of Communication once a month. Bishop Edward J. Burns is its publisher.

The Southeast Alaska Catholic is mailed to every register Catholic in the diocese and to others around the state and beyond. Total circulation is 2160.

The Southeast Alaska Catholic, formerly The Inside Passage for over 40 years, carries local, national and world news. There is no paid advertising. The parishes and missions offer articles and photos to accomplish local news coverage. Catholic News Service (CNS), an editorially independent division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, provides timely news from around the world. The bishop writes a regular column, as well as the director of the Office of Ministries and the Youth and Young Adult minister. An occasional poem or letter is sent for publication.

If you live outside of the Diocese of Juneau and would like to receive The Southeast Alaska Catholic, a donation of $30 is greatly appreciated.

  1. it was wonderful in visiting the diocesan website to see the “little parish that could” from Hoonah where i spent a wonderful holy week several years ago on the front for World Mission Day!

    God’s blessings to all in the diocese……

    I got a copy of the July newspaper. It had a lovely article on Sr Helena Fox. She was my aunt and a really lovely person. We all miss her greatly.
    She was a proud Co Limerick woman and cheered for Limerick. She lived in Cork all her adult life.
    She was very involved with Cork Simon Community since her return from Alaska. I got the following email from them.

    Hi Sheila
    We were so sorry to hear of the death of Sr Helena. I was on holidays at the time and I only heard about 2 weeks ago, I was so upset to hear it. Sr Helena was a wonderful, wonderful supporter of ours and she is a huge loss. Aaron our assistant director attended the funeral to represent Cork Simon.

    I have been working in Cork Simon for 10 years and I think I knew Sr Helena for as long as that, she regularly called into our office over the years and we always really enjoyed her visit. She was such a lovely person, always so encouraging and supportive and interested not only in our work but in us personally. We all knew her and we were all so sad to hear of her death. I remember a few years ago she featured in one of our reports, there was a really lovely picture of her in it with one of our service users. I remember posting it to her at the time and she sent me back a lovely thank you card. I am actually currently trying to get my hands on it, I would like to send it to you and maybe the convent aswell. I will let you know if I can find it.

    Please accept my sympathies on behalf of all of us here at Cork Simon.
