United Catholics Federal Credit Union (formerly St. Christopher’s FCU) was chartered in 1957. Monsignor Bramble and a group of parishioners recognized the benefits of a credit union and through their perceptive vision of finding a way to assist the parish community with their financial needs United Catholics Federal Credit Union was formed. We now serve several parishes, schools, religious groups and parishioners including affiliated staff, affiliated members, students and family members.
In keeping with this vision we have become a full service credit union that provides a wide range of products, loans and services including easy access to your account through Home Banking, Mobile Banking, 5,000+ Shared Branch Credit Union locations to make in-person transactions as well as access to nearly 30,000 ATMs nation-wide. Our focus is on the utilization of technology for member convenience.
We continue to encourage parishes, schools, and religious organizations to become a part of our field of membership. In doing so, everyone affiliated with your organization can benefit from the many services available.

What is a Credit Union?
A credit union is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution owned by its members. Its members are united by a common bond of association also known as field of membership. Credit Unions operate under a unique philosophy of “people-helping-people”. The credit union officials are comprised of board of directors and committee members. All officials volunteer their time, experience and knowledge.
Are Credit Unions safe?
Credit unions are closely regulated on federal and state levels to ensure the safety and soundness of their practices. Many credit unions like United Catholics Federal Credit Union are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which is administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. The federal deposit insurance fund is equivalent to the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation).
