The National Catholic Register is the oldest national Catholic newspaper in the United States. It was founded on November 8, 1927, by Matthew J. Smith as the National Edition of the Denver Catholic Register. [1] Content includes news and features from the United States, the Vatican, and worldwide, on such topics as culture, education, books, arts and entertainment, as well as interviews. Online content includes various blogs and breaking news.

The Register's print edition is published (bi-weekly, 26 times a year) and owned by Eternal Word Television Network, Inc.[1][2] Tom Wehner has been the managing editor since 2009. Jeanette DeMelo became editor in chief in 2012.



Initially, the paper was what was then a mainstream Catholic publication that was loyal to Rome. After Vatican II, the publication moved to a more progressive liberal direction while moving back to the center by the late 1980s. The Register moved into a more conservative direction under new leadership in the 1990s. Eternal Word Television Network acquired the paper from the Legion of Christ in 2011, ensuring that the paper will continue in a conservative direction.[1]

The 2017 Catholic Press Association awards named the Register Newspaper of the Year.[5]

On August 25, 2018, days after Pope Francis had issued an apology for abuses by clergy in the US[6] and before his apology in Ireland,[7] former papal nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò released an 11-page letter in which he claimed that Pope Francis decided to remove the restrictions placed by by Pope Benedict XVI  former Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick who was forced to resign in June 2018 because of sexual misconduct allegations and to make him an advisor. A summary of the letter was published by The Register which referred to it as "written testimony", and by other conservative media including the Catholic News Agency.[8][9]

Viganò said that Pope Francis "knew from at least June 23, 2013 that McCarrick was a serial predator. He knew that he was a corrupt man, he covered for him to the bitter end." He called on Francis and all others who covered up McCarrick's conduct to resign.[10] The Pope subsequently acknowledged that he had read the letter but said that he did not plan to comment on it publicly.[11]
