Website Review: United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

A review based on:


The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is an assembly of the hierarchy of the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands who jointly exercise certain pastoral functions on behalf of the Christian faithful of the United States. The purpose of the Conference is "to promote the greater good which the Church offers humankind, especially through forms and programs of the apostolate fittingly adapted to the circumstances of time and place."

This site is an excellent way to stay current on what is happening in the Church in America, and it also offers a number of very useful general resources on Catholicism.
