Our Mission

The mission of the Idaho Catholic Register, official newspaper of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise, is to unify the far-flung Catholic Church of Idaho; inform Idaho Catholics about what is going on in the church locally, nationally and worldwide; educate Idaho Catholics about the teachings of the church and provide information that will help them make decisions in accordance with Gospel teachings; and inspire Idaho Catholics in their faith.
