The Living City magazine advertising rates and specifications


Editorial Profile:


Living City is a full-color magazine, promoting the ideals of unity, dialogue and communion of the Focolare Movement. Established in 1967, Living City is published 11 times per year, and is an excellent source of hard-to-find positive news.


In these divided and troubled times, Living City stands apart—offering a different view, a better view, a more positive view. It advances the concept of unity, the same unity for which Jesus prayed to the Father, “May they all be one” (Jn 17:21).


Winner of the 2004 and 2006 Egan Awards for Journalistic Excellence, of the 2008 Knights of Columbus McGivney Award, and of 2005 trough 2010 Catholic Press Association awards, Living City is a CPA member and a participating publisher in the Unified Magazine Program of Paulist Press. Living City is a registered trademark of the Focolare Movement.
