About the US-CHINA Catholic Association

HISTORY

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.

PRESENT

Today the USCCA continues its work of building fraternal ties between the Catholic communities on both sides of the Pacific.

 

Our activities include:

  • hosting study tours so that Americans can learn about China and the circumstances of the Church there first hand

  • sending speakers to parishes across America 

  • hosting national conferences on issues facing the Church in China

  • publishing an informative newsletter on relevant developments​

  • providing key resources on our website, including links to relevant news sources, curated publications, resources for travelers, and the like

  • collaborating with social service and other Catholic organizations in China itself

  • serving as a network where people concerned with our mission can learn from and support one another's efforts
