Altar and Hearth Magazine is an ezine by traditional Catholic women responding to the need for a magazine reflective of our principles and values. We are focused on providing lighthearted, whimsical, and inspirational content within a Catholic moral and cultural context.
No more ads for contraceptives. No more ladies in painted on yoga pants and sports bra tops. No more impractical expensive crafts directed toward two-child families.
We invite you to take part by bringing your unique voice and experiences to the table. Tell us what moves you about your family, your friends, or your children. Share your amusing (or embarrassing!) anecdotes, photos or stories. Conduct an interview with someone you think we should all know about.
Check out our Submissions page for guidelines and what we are looking for in coming publications or on the website. Thanks for stopping by!
Find us on Facebook, Pinterest, and Google Plus! Just type in Altar and Hearth Magazine.
