Dear friend:

The Fall 2018 edition of Archways, the quarterly magazine of the Archdiocese of New York, is out. We launched the publication this year to keep you informed about the programs and services available to you and all Catholics in our 10 counties. You can view or download it now at

Given what has been happening in our Church recently, many Catholics are feeling stressed, uncertain, on edge. But while the Church is an institution, it is more importantly people – all of us.

The people of the parishes and offices in this archdiocese are the reason we have programs that offer us opportunities to increase our faith and improve our lives – and also why we have schools and charities that concretely improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and adults every single day.

In the new issue, the cover story will tell you about some of what the archdiocese has to offer to help you deal with the stresses of modern life. In the rest of this edition, you’ll find articles and features filled with tips, insights, inspiration and information on:

  • Volunteer opportunities: Giving aid to asylum-seekers, feeding the hungry and more
  • What’s happening in our schools, at the Sheen Center and elsewhere around our 10 counties
  • Expert answers about the history of Halloween, the life of a deacon and how to avoid the dark side of technology
  • tribute in photographs to the glorious diversity of New York’s Catholics

As Cardinal Dolan says in his opening letter, “In days like these, when the world seems to press in on us from all sides, when the demands of our lives can at times seem like a tyranny, we need more than ever to embrace God and our communities.” Archways will inform you about many ways to grow in your relationship with God and deepen your ties to other members of our Catholic family.

We publish four times per year online at and – if you are a contributor to the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal – you will receive it twice per year in print. I hope that you will look forward to each new edition and that you’ll come away more informed about what we can accomplish together in service of Jesus and His Church.

Yours in Christ,
Michael S. Cain
Managing Editor, Archways
