HISTORY, MISSION AND VISION
Founded in 1989 as the United States Catholic China Bureau through the collaborative efforts of Maryknoll, the Jesuits, other religious orders, and concerned US bishops, our organization was launched at a time when China's opening to the outside world set in motion a cavalcade of changes domestically as well as internationally. The USCCB (our initials at the time) worked to keep the American public, the American Catholic Church, and the American Catholic bishops informed of the needs and circumstances of the Church in China.
Mission & Vision
Inspired by the Gospel, the mission of the US-China Catholic Association is to build bridges of friendship and dialogue between people of China and the United States by offering educational, service, and cultural programs in support of the Church and the larger society.
The vision of the US-China Catholic Association is to build friendship and cooperation between Catholics in China and in the United Sates for the flourishing of society.
