The Congregations of the Church are permanent committees of the College of Cardinals that help inform the Church on a variety of pressing and specialized issues. One of the better known examples of these Congregations is the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, or what used to be titled The Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition.
