To better serve the growing Latino presence in the U.S., Catholic News Agency has expanded its free Access for Editors service to include breaking news on the Universal Church in Spanish. “We're thrilled to announce this service,” said CNA editor-in-chief Marianne Medlin. “The Latino community brings an irreplaceable richness and vitality to the Church nationwide.” “As a young generation of Hispanic leaders emerge under the banner of our new Pope, we're honored to be at the forefront of of providing timely, high-quality news for the American Latino faithful.” CNA's Access for Editors is a free service for Catholic Press Association publications and diocesan newspapers that offers news from bureaus in Washington, D.C., Rome, Italy; Denver, Colorado; Lima, Peru and Santiago, Chile, as well as from correspondents in Spain, Brazil and South East Asia. ACI Prensa, CNA's sister-site, is the largest Spanish Catholic news service in the world, and has been in operation since 1980. This unique partnership allows CNA to provide breaking news for Spanish-speaking readers as well as timely translations of news in English. CNA hopes that by offering this service, it will be able to better serve the growing Latino population in the United States, as well as editors of Spanish publications. Founded in continued response to Pope John Paul II’s call for a “New Evangelization,” CNA has been since 2004 one of the fastest growing Catholic news providers to the English speaking world. CNA strives to provide free, up-to-the-minute news affecting the Universal Church, giving particular emphasis to the words of the Holy Father and happenings of the Holy See, to any person with access to the internet. Though its focus is spread throughout the world, CNA also keeps a close eye on the Roman Catholic Church in the United States and on news related to the creation of a culture of life.
