The Katholiek Nieuwsblad ("Catholic newspaper") is a Dutch Roman Catholic newspaper published weekly on Friday. Its aim is to connect Dutch Catholics to the church. The relatively small newspaper[1] (in 2008 it had 13,500 subscribers[2]) is Christian[1] and includes, besides news and opinion, an overview of the key points of the papal audiences. Unlike other similar newspapers appearing between one and four times a week, the Katholiek Nieuwsblad is not bound to any particular region and even appears across the border, in Flanders.[3] On January 17, 2017, it was announced that the newspaper's editor-in-chief Henk Rijkers had been forced out following an internal division.[4]
