Serving the temporal needs of the church since 1889, Catholic Mutual operates with pride in fulfilling its mission to the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Mutual Relief Society of America was founded by a group of Midwest Catholic Bishops on February 1, 1889. These bishops worked together to form a mutually protective organization which would help repair/rebuild damaged church properties.

Catholic Mutual provides relief to members that experience losses not covered by traditional insurance thus providing coverage that goes far beyond insurance.

From that modest foundation, Catholic Mutual has grown to be the largest provider of coverage to Catholic Dioceses in the United States. We operate in 49 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.

At the Pastoral Center in Bloomfield, Connecticut, Catholic Mutual Group services two Member Dioceses.

Archdiocese of Hartford
Andrew Zajac, Claims/Risk Manager

Diocese of Norwich
Robin A. Holtsclaw, Claims/Risk Manager

Ellen Peterson, Claims/Risk Representative
Michelle Tierney, Service Office Secretary
