A A monthly magazine
The South African Mission’s monthly newsletter was originally called the Cumorah Monthly Bulletin before being formalized as a registered magazine in 1929. The name was changed in July 1933 from Cumorah’s Southern Cross to Cumorah’s Southern Messenger when missionaries discovered that the Catholic Church in South Africa already had a publication named the Southern Cross.
