Exploring the Catholic Church
For many in our network, there was a time when the idea of becoming Catholic, or even considering the possibility of doing so, would have never crossed their minds.
But then something got them thinking.
For some it was their continued study of Holy Scripture, encountering a passage or teaching they'd never seen before. For others, it was the study of the history of Christianity and the writing of the earliest Christians. Others still were challenged or surprised by questions of authority, tradition, faith & reason, or salvation. Some simply found themselves longing for the Holy Eucharist.
It is our mission to share the truth and beauty that we have discovered in the Catholic Faith and to provide mutual fellowship, encouragement, resources and support to others who are making the same discovery.
