About Us

Catholics United for the Faith (CUF) is an international lay apostolate, building on the only sure foundation for happiness and renewal of the family and society: the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church.

Catholics United for the Faith was founded in 1968 by H. Lyman Stebbins to support, defend, and advance the efforts of the teaching Church. CUF has helped tens of thousands of people, young and old, to discover and strengthen their Catholic faith.

I also agree that the laity generally are still too passive (that is, when they’re not too aggressively active!). That is really one of the basic reasons for the existence of CUF: to be a little alarm clock to wake people up, and then a center around which they can rally, and act in the way befitting members of Christ’s true Church. . . . The situation keeps changing, and it’s important that the laity try to act under some kind of coordination, which only an organization like CUF can provide.
