Dear Readers of 'Niedziela',

The Archdiocese of Czestochowa has published the Catholic Weekly 'Niedziela' since 1926. At first the circulation of 'Niedziela' was small and distributed only in the diocese till the year 1939. During World War II the weekly was not published. In 1945, after the war it was distributed all over Poland but appeared till 1953 because the communist authorities suspended its publication. The break lasted till 1981. During the period of Solidarity the bishop of Czestochowa succeeded in re-establishing 'Niedziela'. Since then it has been published as the biggest Catholic weekly in Poland and Central-Eastern Europe. 'Niedziela' is read in Poland, Europe and America - practically on every continent. It has an electronic version and read in 111 countries worldwide. For several months the Russian edition, as a summary of our articles, has been published once a month. more...
