For nearly 85 years, the Tennessee Register has shared the story of how the Diocese of Nashville has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ by helping the people of Middle Tennessee – Catholic and non-Catholic alike – through its schools, social service agencies, hospitals and parishes.
We’ve told the story of large institutions and individual Catholics doing the work of Christ, not only in this diocese but across the United States and around the world. We told the story of tragedies, like last summer’s floods that devastated Waverly, and the story of triumphs like the response of the Catholic community to help their neighbors in need.
We are a conduit for Bishop J. Mark Spalding to talk to his flock and a source of information Catholics can use to learn about the faith.
The Register serves as the flagship communications tool of the diocese, delivering in-depth articles and excellent photographs from the Vatican to the smallest parishes in our diocese. Its excellence has been recognized nationally. It is one of the most decorated publications in the American Catholic press, and several times has received the General Excellence award from the Catholic Press Association, one of the highest honors for diocesan newspapers. As technology has advanced, changing our society in its wake, the Register has adapted to social media platforms to communicate with the people of Middle Tennessee in new ways.
Your subscription to the Register, for only $29 a year, gives us the resources to do this important work and so much more.
Subscriptions not only fund the operations of the Tennessee Register, but also support key communications efforts in the diocese, including the websites of the Diocese of Nashville and the Tennessee Register, and design work provided for other departments and ministries of the diocese.
According to diocesan policy, a minimum of 70 percent of households in each parish must receive the Tennessee Register. If less than 70 percent of families pay for their own subscription, the parish must make up the difference. So, renewing your subscription will not only keep you informed about the Church, local and universal, it will allow you to help lighten the financial load of your parish.
An envelope to renew your subscription will be included in the Feb. 4 and Feb. 18 issues of the paper. If you lose your renewal envelope, contact your parish or call Nancy Mattson at the Register office at 615-783-0750 to get another.
You can pay through your parish by dropping your subscription renewal envelope in the collection basket at Mass. If you mail your payment directly to the Register office, be sure to specify the parish where you are registered so that your parish will get credit for your payment.
Readers can also renew their subscription online at the Register’s website: www.tennesseeregister.com. While you are visiting the website, be sure to sign up for a free subscription of the Register’s online newsletter, the eRegister, to have the latest coverage delivered directly to you Monday through Saturday.
Please drop your subscription renewal in the mail or collection basket today or fill out the online subscription form so you can stay informed and do your part to support the diocese’s most important communications tool, the Tennessee Register.
