Mormon-news is an e-mail list that sends out news items about Mormons
and Mormonism. This includes news about Mormon culture, activities, events
and people worldwide.
The list carries summaries of news items, headlines, press releases
and personal reports sent to the list by subscribers. These news items
are sent to the list in four ways:
Three to five messages each day, each message containing a summary
of an important news article. Every message includes a reference to the
original article (usually including a URL) and a two or three paragraph
summary of its content.
II. Press Releases
The full text of press releases sent by the LDS Church, BYU, Mormon
businesses and other organizations related to Mormonism are sent to the
list soon after they are received. While not all press releases are sent
to the list, all those that are about Mormonism are.
Lists of references, often including web linkss, to articles that appeared
in the press during a particular week on a particular subject. Subjects
include news about General Authorities, Mission news, LDS Church Finance
and Legal news, Mormon Arts & Entertainment news, Mormon Sports news,
These lists make Mormon-news more complete - giving our readers at least
the titles of articles about Mormonism that we couldn't summarize or that
the reader might have missed.
IV. Upcoming Events
Mormon-news also publishes a list of upcoming Mormon events each week.
For copyright reasons, Mormon-news can not carry the full text of copyrighted
articles. For both volume and resource reasons, we also can't summarize
Notices of news items, upcoming events, summaries of news items and
personal reports of newsworthy events can be sent in by anyone, just by
sending an email message to Mormon-news.
