>> Please note: Just this year alone, The Anchor has had to compensate the U.S. Postal Service more than $300 for subscribers who had not notified us of an address change. These fees are prohibitive and greatly affect production costs. As of April 2017, The Anchor has to charge subscribers $2 to offset the crippling fees. We regret the need to do this. If any subscriber will be changing an address, please call the office at 508-675-7151 or email, to prevent the fees.

FALL RIVER — The Anchor, the official Catholic newspaper of the Diocese of Fall River, has announced a few changes of which current subscribers should be made aware.

At the renewal date for each subscriber, the annual cost for The Anchor will become $25. This is the first rate increase for The Anchor in more than 10 years. While we realize it may be an extra burden to some, the $20 cost did not cover printing and mailing overheads. At the new rate, it still works out to costing subscribers less than $1 per issue, far less than most publications.

The Anchor is also offering its readers the option to renew for two years at $45 for 52 issues, a savings of $5.

The date in which the subscription will expire will be listed in each edition above the name and address of the subscriber on the back page (page 24).

Subscribers are encouraged to renew their subscription by that date by sending a check or money order for $25 (one year) or $45 (two years) made payable to The Anchor, 887 Highland Avenue, Fall River, Mass. 02720

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept credit card payments by phone.

If a payment isn’t received within 30 days of the expiration date, The Anchor will send out one reminder notice.

You may also order printed copies of recent back issues of The Anchor for $2 each
by mailing a check made payable to “The Anchor” to:

The Anchor
887 Highland Avenue
Fall River, Mass. 02720

Please specify which edition you are requesting by publication date.
