Who we are?
Aleteia (aleteia.org) is an online publication distributed in seven languages (English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and, since July 2016, Polish).
The Aleteia site offers a Christian vision of the world by providing general and religious content that is free from ideological influences. It also publishes specialized digital magazines, including one aimed at a female audience called “For Her.”
With some 200,000 subscribers to our newsletter and more than 1.5 million fans on Facebook, Aleteia reaches more than 9 million unique visitors a month.
Since its launch in 2013, the initiative has been supported by the Foundation for Evangelization through the Media (FEM), which began in Rome in 2011. The Foundation was created to promote the Church’s presence in the media and is currently chaired by H.S.H Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein.
In July 2015, the Média-Participations Group became Aleteia’s industrial operator. Média-Participations is a European media group specializing in publishing (with more than 40 publishers), the printing industry (10 magazines), audiovisual production, and websites.
Since then, Aleteia has developed a new editorial strategy focused primarily on information and lifestyle.
Links with the Church
Created through the passion and professional expertise of lay Catholics, since its launch Aleteia has been accompanied by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. In communion with the Church’s Magisterium, Aleteia is open to working with the dicasteries of the Holy See, and also collaborates with bishops conferences and religious orders, congregations and communities, some of which are directly involved in the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Evangelization through the Media (FEM).
