US Catholic China Bureau's Mission
 is to provide resources and information to those who have a serious and professional interest in the Catholic Church in China, the religious situation in China, and the general situation in China. Since its founding in 1989, the U.S. Catholic China Bureau continues to educate American Catholics about the Catholic Church in China. Supported by a cross-section of Catholic religious congregations, organizations, individuals, friends, Christians and affirmed by U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the China Bureau further seeks to foster engagement and opportunities for cooperation and service between American Catholics and Chinese Catholics.
