Catholic World News

Our news service is, quite frankly, the most comprehensive and efficient anywhere. See for yourself!

Worldwide Coverage

Worldwide news is now released first on the Internet by local groups and news outlets which post information almost as it happens. We monitor scores of sources, select what best serves Catholics, write appropriate headlines and editorial notes, and link you directly to the original sources. We also write our own stories as needed to ensure accuracy and fairness.

Special News Home Page

On our News home page, we display the most recent stories in order of importance, providing our headlines and editorial notes, so that when you click on the story, you can go straight to the source.

Daily News Headlines Message

Our email newsletters include a daily news headlines message, sent out each weekday afternoon, bringing all these stories right to your Inbox.

The News Menu

From the News menu at the top of each page, you can view the most important stories, the most popular stories, and the most current stories within the last 30 days.

Archives also offers news archives going back to 1996.
