The Easter print edition of the Dialog scheduled to be distributed April 10, or Good Friday, will not be published, officials of the Diocese of Wilmington announced March 31.
The diocese newspaper is primarily distributed at churches throughout Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Public Masses have been suspended indefinitely to try to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The biweekly Dialog missed its first print edition March 27. Journalists and newspaper workers have been working from home and providing real-time news to parishioners via its website, thedialog.org, and its e-newsletter the Angelus. The website shattered its online readership record with nearly 100,000 page views in March as readers turned to the digital edition for breaking news during the public health crisis.
No decision has been made for the following print edition of April 24.
