As the US affiliate of the Fondazione, CAPP-USA is a not-for-profit, membership corporation governed by a self-perpetuating, lay-dominated board. CAPP-USA is a 501(c)(3) and is recognized by the US Treasury as an “intergrated auxiliary” of the Roman Catholic Church.
Our National Ecclesiastic Counselors are Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington, DC, and the Most Reverend William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore.
Nationally, CAPP-USA is associated with The Catholic University of America with which we developed the Certificate Program in Catholic Social Teaching. We currently have chapters in Fairfield County, Diocese of Bridgeport (CT); DC, Archdiocese of Washington (DC); Newark, Archdiocese of Newark (NJ), and; New York, Archdiocese of New York.
Our mission is to evangelize lay Catholic leaders – to help form their consciences on the principles of Catholic Social Doctrine and support their initiatives to implement it in the various sectors of society.
Our goal is to develop a strong, committed group of Catholic lay men and women, rich in faith and theologically prepared to be present in public life to explain, develop and implement CST in our challenging world so as we may become a deep and credible voice in the public square.
