Our Publications
The Independent Newsweekly
National Catholic Reporter is an independent newsweekly that is frequently the first to report on serious issues important to thinking Catholics and the first place to find open, honest and ongoing discussion of those issues. NCR makes a commitment to in-depth reporting of global peace and justice issues and consistently wins national and international awards for "Best Investigative Reporting" and "General Excellence" from the Catholic Press Association.

Founded in 1964, NCR has earned a reputation for fearless, balanced writing on a wide range of topics: spirituality, human rights, living the faith, social justice, catholic trends and liturgical developments. Regular special features include book and movie reviews, exclusive articles by noted writers and listings for retreats, renewal programs and educational opportunities.

Our history is rich with reasons why over 120,000 loyal readers in 96 countries on 6 continents rely on NCR to bring them the stories that can be found nowhere else. 
In its 42 issues each year, NCR is dedicated to continuously telling the story of the wonderfully diverse and devoted Catholic family while looking toward the future and a time of hope and opportunity.
