The Crusader


Mission Statement 

The mission of the Archbishop Riordan High School Newspaper, The Crusader, is to inform, educate and entertain the readers—students, teachers, parents, members of the community—about issues that affect the students as well as citizens of San Francisco and the nation.  We hope to instill a sense of understanding, responsibility and curiosity in our readers that results in an eagerness to learn more about their peers and the world around them.


“Let us create a journalism of peace . . .a journalism that is truthful and opposed to falsehoods, rhetorical slogans, and sensational headlines. A journalism created by people for people, one that is at the service of all, especially those – and they are the majority in our world – who have no voice.” -Pope Francis
