CTS celebrate 150 years

To mark 150 years of publishing, the CTS were delighted to celebrate with archbishops, bishops, priests and the wider CTS family of donors, volunteers, CTS parish representatives and authors from around the world.

In his homily Cardinal Nichols congratulated CTS, as Publishers to the Holy See since 1964, for playing a pivotal role in communicating the teaching of the Magisterium. He also praised CTS founder Cardinal Vaughan, for two of his great gifts to the Church, the founding of CTS in 1868 and the building of Westminster Cathedral: “The two legacies of Cardinal Vaughan, the Cathedral and the Society, fit together well. The CTS motto ‘God’s Truth, beautifully told’, hints at why. That Westminster Cathedral is beautiful is beyond question, but it’s beauty is purposeful – it is there to lead us towards Jesus Christ, who is our Truth. Those whose hearts are stirred by beauty may start to ask themselves questions about the source of that beauty and wish to inform themselves more deeply about it.

The work of the CTS is there to provide a practical response to that desire.” CTS General Secretary Fergal Martin said, “1868 to 2018 we feel is something to celebrate. CTS would have little to offer without our donors, writers and parish reps and those who support us constantly with their prayers. It’s a privilege to work for the Gospel and for the Truth – the truth which brings so much joy and hope to the lives of those to welcome it.” “As president of the CTS I am very proud of how the charity have faithfully worked to support the mission of Catholics to enrich society and give hope and joy to past, present and future generations. My congratulations to all at the CTS, their volunteers and supporters on their 150th Anniversary.” Cardinal Vincent Nichols For more information on the CTS and our 150th Anniversary Appeal please go to or contact Claire Dancaster Morgado, Head of Sales and Marketing: 020 7640 0042;
