The CNS News Hub was launched by Catholic News Service in August 2006, primarily to showcase and link to news and views on the Web sites of CNS client publications. The news hub later morphed into a vehicle to not only promote CNS clients but also to highlight some of the products and services of the news service itself. Often when a story is making waves in the secular press, CNS can point to material it has already produced to put the story into perspective or to correct erroneous interpretations circulating in the media or on the Internet.
Catholic News Service, founded in 1920, is the primary source of national and world news that appears in the U.S. Catholic press. It is also a leading source of news for Catholic print and broadcast media throughout the world.
