News & Publications
There are many ways to stay connected with us and aware of exciting things happening around the Diocese of RI. In addition to our publications below, you can connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also check out Bishop Knisely’s page to hear him directly speak in tweets, posts and on his blog.
RISEN Magazine is our Diocesan News and Special Interest Magazine. We switched from a newspaper format to the current full color journal in 2007. By doing so, we have been able to focus our attention on producing a high-quality print periodical with staying power. It is something that people go to again and again for articles of interest and words of inspiration. Each issue is now focused around a central theme.

(It is not the place for publicizing local parish events. Here are some tips on how to do that.) If you would like to receive the diocesan eNews, just sign up here.
Here is an archive of recent issues:
