John Allen joins Boston Globe

Boston Globe

John Allen, one of the most important reporters on the Vatican and Catholicism, is joining the Boston Globe from National Catholic Reporter, the Globe says in a release. Globe Editor Brian McGrory says Allen will have “several roles of prominence.” McGrory continues:

He will be a correspondent first and foremost. He will be an analyst on all things Catholic. He will also help us explore the very real possibility of launching a free-standing publication devoted to Catholicism, drawing in other correspondents and leading voices from near and far.

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.
