Catholic Advertising Network (CAN)

CAN is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Catholic Press Association. It offers the unique advantage of being the official national representative of Catholic diocesan newspapers and magazines. Our rates are the most competitive and cannot be undersold.

With more readers than The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today combined, Catholic newspapers and magazines offer a unique opportunity for the advertiser. High visibility! High penetration! Don't go unnoticed in the dailies! Because of the nature of our newspapers, advertising space averages only 25-40%, which means your ad will be well showcased.

Advertisers and Ad Agencies deal solely with the Catholic Advertising Network (CAN) to reach the 12 million readers of 190 diocesan newspapers and magazines. The advertiser places one insertion order with CAN and receives one invoice (with tear sheets). CAN does the rest!

America's Catholic readers are well-educated and loyal with tremendous buying power. You'll discover more about this untapped potential as you review the CAN media kit.
