EXPLORE CATHOLICISM

The Catholic Church with a history spanning the last 2000+ years has a wealth of knowledge and spiritual teaching to explore. Below you will find links to a number of fantastic online resources to help answer your questions about Catholicism and inspire your spiritual life. Formed is an online platform of Catholic video and audio content to help inform and inspire. Word on Fire is the apostolate of Bishop Robert Baron and has intelligent and current reflections and videos. Our friends over at Dynamic Catholic are leading the push to revitalize the Catholic Church in America with books, videos, and reflections sure to encourage you. Ascension Presents produces some of the best video content to motivate your daily faith life. Also check out the Archdiocese and the Vatican webpages, as well as a few pages we put together exploring the history of Catholicism and many of our most commonly heard questions here at the parish. Finally you’ll see a link to an online searchable Catechism of the Catholic Church. This is a great resource to search if you have a question about what the Church teaches on numerous topics.

Saint Thomas More has a process for those wanting to become a Catholic; this process is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).  For more information on R.C.I.A. please visit our “Becoming Catholic” page for more information.
