Understanding & Appreciating Catholicism

The Catholic Catechism and faith is about so much more than rules and traditions. It is about belonging to a community based on the deepest type of emotion and feeling there is, sacrificial love. It was founded by Christ, based on the need of the people; the gifts He lavishes on us, are more than we could ever earn or deserve.

You see, Christ didn’t just die for all people. He came down from Heaven and was born for us. That’s pretty powerful when you think about it, that God loves us enough to create us, and then to be born as one of us.

Catholic teachings are summarized by what we profess in our creed, commonly referred to as the Apostle’s Creed. This is where the Catechism begins, defining what it means to be a Catholic Christian.
