False Pretense: Michigan Catholic Tribune

Dear Parishioners,

The Diocese of Grand Rapids has received a handful of calls over the past two days regarding a publication called, the “Michigan Catholic Tribune.” It appears the publication was mailed to Catholic households across West Michigan. They do not know who or how many people may have received this newspaper.

The Tribune falsely presents itself as a Catholic publication, and the newspaper includes a photo of Bishop Walkowiak along with a quote from his statement on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health in a ‘They said it’ section.

This publication and its accompanying website are not endorsed by nor are they affiliated with the Diocese of Grand Rapids or the Catholic Church. Information about the publisher is not apparent in the print publication.

The diocese did not share mailing information for this publication. We never sell parishioner contact information.

webpage is available so you can make this information known to your parishioners.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Annalise Laumeyer | Director of Communications
Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids
