National Catholic Register

Founded in 1927, the Register continues to provide its readers with timely news reporting from across the United States, from the Vatican, and from around the world, providing a perspective on the news of the day as seen through the eyes of the Magisterium. Register publications include the National Catholic Register bi-weekly newspaper, NCRegister.Com website, and the Register Daily & Weekly email news updates.

The National Catholic Register is published biweekly, 26 issues per year. Our print subscribers are mature, well-educated, and have the expendable income to make your advertising dollars count. The majority of our subscribers regularly buy goods and services by phone, mail, and the web, and travel frequently for enjoyment. The average age of our print subscriber is 55, and roughly 50% male/female. Half of our subscribers have grandchildren. 1/3 have children in the home with 63% attending Catholic or home schools.
