In addition to diocesan news, The Good News is committed to communicating the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church. It includes current news and reflections from the Vatican, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Michigan Catholic Conference. Additional commentaries relate to spiritual, moral and ethical issues.
