Communications / Idaho Catholic Register

Diocesan Website, Newspaper, Media and Public Relations

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. 

Founded in 1958 by Bishop James J. Byrne, the ICR was part of the Register newspapers, a national chain headquartered in Denver, Colorado, it became an independent newspaper in 1973 and changed formats from a broadsheet to a tabloid in 1978. Today, with a circulation of more than 16,000, the ICR reaches Catholic homes in every corner of the state.
