The New Catholic Encyclopedia is a multivolume reference work on Roman Catholic history and belief edited by the faculty of The Catholic University of Americamarker and originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1967 with supplements issued in 1974, 1979, 1989, and 1996. A second edition, incorporating material from the original edition and supplements, along with additional revisions, was published by Thomson Gale in 2002.

The New Catholic Encyclopedia is intended to be a standard reference work for students, teachers, librarians, journalists, and general readers interested in the history, doctrine, practices, and people of the Catholic faith. The original Catholic Encyclopedia was published between 1907 and 1914 by The Encyclopedic Press Inc. (formerly the Robert Appleton Company); supplements followed in 1922 and 1958. In 1967, the Catholic University of America, in collaboration with the McGraw-Hill Book Company, produced an entirely new work, the 15-volume New Catholic Encyclopedia. Supplemental volumes appeared in 1974, 1979, 1989, and 1996. In 2001, the Gale Group, in collaboration with the Catholic University of America, published a Jubilee Volume of the New Catholic Encyclopedia as a transition to the 15-volume Second Edition of the New Catholic Encyclopedia that appeared in 2003.

In the summer of 2006, the publisher, Cengage Learning, together with the The Catholic University of America Press, developed a plan for ongoing updating of the Second Edition in electronic form. There will be new entries as well as revised and updated articles from either the 1967 or 2003 editions. The updating is intended to provide readers with entries on topics related to Catholic faith and culture, with a special focus on the U.S.A. These new entries will include biographies as well as articles on movements, organizations, documents and ideas that are either Catholic or of special interest to Catholics. The first of these supplements, Supplement 2009, published in June of 2009 electronically and in November of 2009 in print, focuses on the theme of Science and the Church. It also updates all of the entries on the Catholic Church in each of the fifty States as well as all of the 33 Archdioceses in United States. The supplement planned for 2010 will focus on the Church in Modern History, Particularly World War II and after. This supplement will also update and include all those men and women who have been Beatified or Canonized since 2002. Supplement 2011 and 2012 will focus on the Church and the Arts and Music and Ethics and Philosophy respectively.
