“As an international publication of the Church, it is our mission to provide timely, uplifting and inspiring content that connects readers with the Church and with one another,” said Sarah Jane Weaver, editor of the Church News. “Our new app and Spanish and Portuguese language editions help us accomplish this important goal. We are excited to make the Church News available to many more Latter-day Saints now and in the future.”

Burke Olsen, head digital officer of the Deseret News, also mentioned the excitement he feels about expanding the Church News’ global reach.

“For the first time ever, we’re making a concerted and consistent effort to offer the Church News to people whose first languages are Spanish and Portuguese,” Olsen said. “We hope to be able to increase that number of languages as the months and years go by.”

As “A Living Record of the Restoration,” the Church News serves as a source of inspiring stories of Church leaders and members across the globe. Readers also rely on the Church News for the latest information about Church announcements, general conference, callings and temples.
