The Catholic Register is the oldest English-language Catholic weekly newspaper in Canada, launched in 1893 (and tracing its roots to The Catholic, 1830).

Based in Toronto, Ontario and circulated nationally, it is owned by the Archdiocese of Toronto, and published weekly in tabloid format, with 47 issues per year.

News coverage includes local, national, and international Church-related news (frequently reprinted from other Catholic news syndication services), plus various columns and editorials. In their own words:

The Catholic Register has been in the forefront of public debates concerning the Church. Whether it be education, military conscription in wartime, the battle against poverty or human rights, Register pages have been a forum for discussion and presenting the Catholic viewpoint.... The Register tries to present a broad spectrum of views from within the Catholic community, as well as views from those outside the faith which would, in the opinion of the editor, help Catholics better understand their world.[1]

The newspaper is distributed in Catholic churches in Canada, through subscription, and on their Internet web site. It is also promoted through the Salt + Light Television network.
