NCCL's members represent the full spectrum of catechetical leadership: bishops, pastors, diocesan and parish directors of religious education, academics and publishers of catechetical materials. Today, it is the only independent national organization exclusively dedicated to serving the Catholic Church's catechetical mission in the United States.
Diocesan members join NCCL through their dioceses. Publishers and other corporate members join through their companies. Others apply for membership at the Single Level.
