Many readers will have already discovered our changes to our website. has been steadily improving over the past few years. First, we offered full access to all the newspaper’s news, features and commentary. Then we added a searchable archive of the Register’s original stories published in the 2000s. We also offered faith-formation resources.

We were still, however, a weekly publication on the Web, which is an “hourly” medium. Even changing our online “Media Watch” column wasn’t enough.

So now we have updated the website again to include a daily blog, reporting news and putting it in a Catholic context. Have a look — and tell us what you think.
