Thank You, Associates

Article excerpt

Thank you, Associates. This year Commonweal celebrates eighty-eight years of providing a place for reflective, independent Catholic thought. We are able to do this because of the steadfast support of the Commonweal Associates. Their contributions help bridge the gap between our revenue and expenses, pay our writers and artists, and promote the magazine. And that is why every year at this time we thank those who have contributed to the Associates in the previous year. And special thanks to volunteer Jean Marie Lumb for the generous gift of her time. If you have not yet become a member of the Associates, you are welcome to join their company in 2012 (see the back cover for details or visit
