The ACHS was delighted to see our support for the ongoing digitization of the Catholic Standard and Times featured in the latest issue of CatholicPhilly.com.
In May 2020, the ACHS board agreed to provide a $10,000 grant to the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) to support the ongoing digitization of the Catholic Standard & Times. Thanks to our support, the CRRA’s Catholic News Archive expanded its holdings to include almost another two decades’ worth of issues of the CS&T – from October 1944 to 1962.
We are pleased that the CS&T from those years—a remarkably rich era in Philadelphia’s Catholic history—are now freely available and full-text searchable. We invite everyone to take a look by visiting the CS&T page in the Catholic News Archive.
