Rupert’s Land News is the official monthly publication of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land, in the Anglican Church of Canada. The e-magazine is published 10 times per year (September – June) and connects churches and communities from Portage la Prairie, MB, to Atikokan, ON by offering news, events, opinions, and ideas to thousands of readers per month.
Since 2014, RLN has evolved and achieved status as an award-winning publication in faith journalism. Our mission at RLN is to explore issues at the intersections of faith and life. This means that we are doing more than simply getting the news out. Our platform provides a voice for parishioners who would like to explore difficult or challenging topics and offer opinions and insightful solutions for moving forward. Parishioners have the opportunity to write about items close to their hearts as well as read and benefit from professional writers and experts on matters relevant to church and culture.
RLN solicits writers from both inside and outside of the Diocese, and thus publishes a range of opinions, not all of which reflect the official positions of the Diocese. Our team, composed of a part-time editor (Misha Pensato), external designer (Mike Berg), advertising manager (Angela Rush), and volunteer Advisory Board, strives to be innovative in the ways we serve the multiple demographics within our Diocese and the larger faith community.
In addition to our monthly e-magazine, RLN also distributes a weekly newsletter via email.The newsletter provides a format for current news and events relevant to our diocese to be shared in a concise matter. The magazine, in contrast, is a platform for exploring difficult and challenging topics, for creative expression, for learning about and from those within and without our churches, and for complex theological engagement. With the magazine we hope to cultivate thought, while enriching faith. While the newsletter is about the diocese, the magazine is for the diocese. Subscribers to RLN can choose to receive our monthly e-magazine exclusively, or our weekly newsletter in addition to our monthly magazine.
