A grand experiment in independent Catholic journalism is unfolding in Chicago at ChicagoCatholicNews.com. The site provides local coverage of interest to Chicago-area Catholics, without the funding or permission of the Chicago archdiocese.
It was founded by Robert Herguth, a former reporter and editor at the Chicago Sun-Times.
The site has published several good news stories. It's latest deals with "increasing unrest in Chicago-area parishes -- from those in pews and pulpits."
