National Catholic Register Launches New Web Site
Outstanding new site offers cutting-edge national and international Catholic news.

National Catholic Register

January 13, 2010. The National Catholic Register has taken another leap forward with an exciting new web site offering up-to-the-minute Catholic news. A letter from publisher Fr Owen Kearns, LC, gives an overview of why this new web site is a great go-to source of Catholics who want to stay up to date.

As Fr Kearns notes, “For Register subscribers, just might be the richest library of news-oriented Catholic content on the Internet.”

Dear Friend of the Catholic Press,

I knew in theory that our new website was going to represent a significant improvement over the “old” What I didn’t know until it went live today was just how dynamic it would be in action.

Let’s just say that every so often God sends a reminder that he has blessed me with a remarkably talented and faithful crew.

Had you asked me 10 years ago, I might have predicted a website that, in 2010, would more or less mirror our print edition. But the new does far more than that. It needs to, if we are to keep our readers fed on the facts as they unfold and help Catholics think with the Church on the developments of the day.

There’s so much going on that affects Catholics today — and so many Catholics are doing so much to help build the Kingdom of Christ — that this still-emerging medium is actually a great fit for us. In fact, it’s no stretch to say that the Internet has become an ideal vehicle for presenting the very kind of content the Register specializes in producing.

Scroll around and you’ll see that, online, we’re able to offer you original and exclusive news stories as soon as the news breaks. Our aggregation service allows us to pluck nuggets of informational wheat from among the Web’s mountains of time-wasting chaff for you. And our “blog alley” — featuring the likes of Mark Shea, Danielle Bean, Tom Hoopes, Jimmy Akin, Steven Greydanus and Tim Drake — facilitates formational commentary and feisty dialogue on every aspect of Catholic living you can think of.

And that’s just the free content. Subscribers to the print Register will enjoy everything I’ve just mentioned plus the full text of every print edition, a searchable archive of everything the paper has published since 2000, and unlimited access to a wealth of Catholic resources unavailable anywhere else. 

Indeed, for Register subscribers, just might be the richest library of news-oriented Catholic content on the Internet. (If you’re not among them, you can subscribe via the website.)

Major as they are, none of the improvements you see at will take anything away from our print edition. In fact, we expect our Web work to push the print Register to higher levels of quality and completeness.

For all this I have a highly dedicated staff and wonderfully skilled contributors to thank. I hope you’ll visit next time you’re online and pray for the people whose names you see — and, just as fervently, for the unsung workers whose “behind the scenes” contributions are equally integral to the carrying out of our Catholic communications mission.

I hope you enjoy the new every day as much as I am relishing it today.

God bless you
Father Owen Kearns, LC
Publisher and Editor in Chief
