Catholic Mutual Group was established as The Catholic Mutual Relief Society of America in 1889 by a group of Midwest Catholic bishops who were unable to obtain reasonably priced, reliable insurance on their churches.  Catholic Mutual Group Offers comprehensive property, casualty and employee benefit packages and related services tailored to the specific needs for the Catholic Church in North America, currently serving more than 125 Diocese and Archdiocese and 200 Catholic religious orders and institutions in the U.S. and Canada.

As a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that is part of the Catholic Church, we serve only Church-owned institutions and have no obligations to stockholders or a profit motive, only to the needs and mission of the Church.  Our Board of Trustees consists exclusively of cardinals, archbishops, and bishops.  It is our job to provide a stable environment for all our members, but it is our vocation to ensure that, in times of crises, our members are made whole.
