Catholic News Service (CNS) is an American news agency covering the Roman Catholic Church. CNS was established in 1920 as the National Catholic Welfare Council (NCWC) Press Department.[2] In the 1960s it became the National Catholic News Service, and dropped "National" from its name in 1986 to indicate its intention to provide worldwide coverage.[3][4]

The news agency labels itself as the primary source of national and world news that appears in the U.S. Catholic press. It is editorially independent and a financially self-sustaining division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. CNS is based in Washington, D.C.[5][6]

It has a documentary service called Origins, which "publishes texts from the Vatican, pope, bishops, Congress, Senate, Supreme Court and church leaders around the world".[7][8]

From 2004 to 2016 the Catholic News Service was headed by its director and editor-in-chief, Tony Spence. Spence was removed in April 2016 after receiving criticism from some conservative Catholics about posts he made on Twitter in support of LGBT rights.[9][10]

There is a similar agency called the Catholic News Agency.
