Established in 1997
CatholicDirectory.org was set up not only to help people find their local Church and Mass Times but also to create a foundation for communication in the Catholic Church in England and Wales. It now includes information from other parts of the world and forms the foundation of many websites and IT systems used by Catholic Organisations, Dioceses, Publishers and Parishes.
The directory was originally started on a voluntary basis and although it has turned into a company and then a group of companies it still remains something we offer for the same reason we started with. Although we are not a charity, we decided to become a business rather than a charity because we wanted our evangelising projects to be self-sustainable and so they do not use the Churches money or resources.
