& Office of Communications
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.
Contribute to Our Mission
This online version of the Idaho Catholic Register is made possible by those who continue to subscribe to the ICR. If you read the paper online, please consider an annual donation of $20 to the Idaho Catholic Register either through your parish, by contacting the ICR at 208-350-7530, or Donate Here. When you donate through your parish, your parish gets a $3 credit for each subscription. Much of the work of the Diocese of Boise’s Communications Department – videos, social media posts, the online edition and the print edition of the ICR – is supported by your subscriptions to the Idaho Catholic Register. Thank you and God bless you!
