What is U.S. Catholic  magazine?

U.S. Catholic puts faith in the context of everyday life. With a strong focus on social justice, we offer a fresh and balanced take on the issues that matter most in our world, adding a faith perspective to such challenges as poverty, education, family life, and pop culture.

Each month’s issue is packed with comprehensive reporting, in-depth interviews, colorful opinion essays, cultural commentary, media reviews, and more. For nearly 80 years we have been a courageous, forward-thinking forum for discussion among a broad range of voices. Start reading and join the conversation.

Who publishes U.S. Catholic ?

U.S. Catholic magazine is published by the Claretians. Following in the footsteps of St. Anthony Claret—a prolific writer and publisher whom Pope Pius XI called the "Modern Apostle of the Good Press"—the Claretians in the United States began their publishing ministry in 1935 with the first edition of the magazine The Voice of St. Jude. In 1963, during the Second Vatican Council, The Voice of St. Jude transformed into U.S. Catholic magazine. Today Claretian Publications in Chicago is one of the country's most respected Catholic publishers of magazines and newsletters.

Who are The Claretians?

The Claretian Missionaries are a Roman Catholic religious community of priests and brothers. We are dedicated to the mission of living and spreading the Gospel of Jesus. For more information, visit www.claretiansusa.org.
