Our diocesan publication is the “High Desert Catholic.”  In addition, the Diocese of Reno hosts a number of social media sites and sponsors a TV mass each Sunday on the KOLO-TV at 9am.

The High Desert Catholic

The High Desert Catholic is published six times a year. We showcase our own people who evangelize in word and deed within our Diocese.

Lisa Laughlin is the editor, and can be reached at

Sunday TV Mass

Spreading the Good News to those who cannot make it to Sunday Mass is the reason for our  TV mass.  It is broadcast on KOLO-TV (Channel 8) on Sundays at 9am.

Frontier of Faith

We share our story even beyond our own diocese.  Begun in 1951, the Frontier of the Faith is a missionary effort of the Diocese of Reno. The objective of the Frontier of the Faith is to help raise funds for the support of Northern Nevada’s mission priests and parishes.  Twelve of the twenty-eight parishes in the Diocese of Reno are mission parishes and require some sort of financial support. 
The Frontier of the Faith publishes a newsletter called the Frontier Shepherd five times yearly as a means of providing information about the Diocese.

In addition, the Frontier of the Faith also helps our parishes by providing Mass stipends for them from our generous readers. Masses can be scheduled and offered in a timely manner by the priests serving in the Diocese.

The Ecclesiastical Province of San Francisco, of which we are part, now recommends the following:  
1. A $5.00 stipend for a mass to be celebrated at a time left to the discretion of the priest.  
2. A $10.00 stipend for a mass to be celebrated on a specific date.  

Over the years, many benefactors have seen fit to include the Diocese in their wills and this has also been a great support for our mission parishes.
