The National Catholic Register is the oldest national Roman Catholic newspaper in the United States.

The National Catholic Register began in 1927 and its print edition is a bi-weekly publication. The newspaper follows Catholic teachings on such subjects such as abortion, homosexual "marriage", embryonic stem-cell research, cloning, and in-vitro fertilization. It also covers issues such as poverty and the death penalty. Although initially conservative in its outlook, it currently pushes more left-wing views, many times going against Catholic doctrine, to the extent that Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City has requested that the newspaper no longer call itself Catholic.[1]

The newspaper was acquired in January 2011 by EWTN NEWS, Inc.[2]

The National Catholic Register (NCR) should not be confused with the National Catholic Reporter (NCR), which promotes women's ordination and LGBTQAI rights.[3]
