Flourish, the monthly newspaper of the Catholic Archdiocese of Glasgow

About Flourish

The award winning Flourish newspaper is the official full colour monthly newspaper for the Archdiocese of Glasgow and is circulated to all 99 parishes in the Archdiocese of Glasgow and a number of parishes in the dioceses of Motherwell and Paisley. Flourish is published 11 times a year — appearing on the first Sunday of each month except January. The City of Glasgow is the main population centre along with the ancient town of Dumbarton in the west and the new town of Cumbernauld in the east. The Archdiocese extends to Bearsden and Milngavie in the north and all the way to Balloch and Garelochhead in the west.

The paper’s title is derived from the motto of the city of Glasgow – “Lord, Let Glasgow Flourish by the preaching of Thy Word and the praising of Thy Name” – attributed to St Mungo, the patron of the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

The print edition of Flourish has a monthly readership of around 50,000, and there is also a worldwide following thanks to our website www.Flourishnewspaper.co.uk

Flourish provides entertaining, vibrant and thought provoking coverage of current national and international events, as well as local news and regular features on weddings, schools, home services, holidays and travel, solicitors, the arts, vocations and funeral services.
