Catholic Resources

 As Catholics, we have an obligation to ourselves and to our faith community to remain informed and educated about our ever-changing Church. We do this through a variety of sources

  1. Active membership in the parish and regular worship

  2. Involvement in Adult Education opportunities offered at the parish and diocesan level

  3. Good periodicals that keep us up-to-date and well-educated.

Here is a list of some resources:
