About El Mensajero: History & Mission

Just months after it was established in late 2005, El Mensajero Católico was recognized as one of North America’s finest Spanish-language, Catholic publications. It remains top-ranked among newspapers of its class and has gone on to receive numerous awards for reporting, graphic design and photographic excellence.

Our Mission:

El Mensajero Católico reports on people, programs and issues affecting the Hispanic community of Rochester and the surrounding area, while highlighting the community’s faith and cultural traditions.

El Mensajero is the only long-established, locally based publication providing consistent local-news and feature reporting on the area’s growing Hispanic community. A non-profit enterprise, it is deeply committed to serving area Latinos’ information needs both today and for many years to come.

El Mensajero’s community-based, in-depth journalism continues to emphasize such vital issues as immigration, health care, education, social justice and crime prevention. It also offers personality profiles, stunning photography and videos, and feature stories about cultural and religious celebrations.

El Mensajero is distributed FREE at more than 250 area retail locations, agencies and churches. Look for your copy at any of these fine locations!
