Catholic Pulse is a service of the Knights of Columbus dedicated to bringing readers original commentary, a summary of the daily news, and featured opinion that Catholics need to know. We invite you to spend time with us each day, reading our contributors’ opinions and commentary, catching up on the daily news, and staying current on featured opinion from across the web.
The Gospel of Christ and the teachings of his Church guide the work of the USCCB. The work of the Conference is rooted in three general mission goals and organized into three key areas of responsibility.
- To act collaboratively and consistently on vital issues confronting the Church and society
- To foster communion with the Church in other nations, within the Church universal, under the leadership of its supreme pastor, the Roman Pontiff
- To offer appropriate assistance to each bishop in fulfilling his particular ministry in the local Church
Catholic Home Study Service (CHSS), sponsored by the Vincentian community and the Missouri Knights of Columbus, has been offering free courses on the Catholic Faith for more than seventy years. It is based at Saint Mary’s of the Barrens, historic “motherhouse”of the Vincentian Community in America. Father Oscar Lukefahr, C.M. is the Director of Catholic Home Study Service.
