The newspaper, The Mater Dei Lance, is a student-managed publication. The staff welcomes students interested in writing and reporting news or creating artwork for the newspaper, which is published five times during the school year. One planning meeting and one week of layouts are held for each of the five editions.
The Mater Dei Lance, which possesses nearly 350 subscribers, has continually received high ratings at the annual Southern Illinois School Press Association (SISPA) Convention, including being awarded the prestigious “Blue Banner” award in 2005 and 2011 for overall excellence.
All Mater Dei students are welcome to join the staff of The Mater Dei Lance at any time throughout the year.
