It is important that we understand what our faith teaches. Our US Bishops have a couple resources that you can tap for catechesis. The US Catholic Catechism for Adults is a companion to the larger document that was published several years ago. There are several videos you can view on the website. The link is here.

Another important avenue is the emphasis on personal witness. We need to tell others and witness to others what being a Catholic is all about. The Bishops have a document called "Disciples Called to Witness". You can see this right here.


If you are looking to be a part of our church family but feel awkward then talk to Wayne Talbot at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We welcome believers who have been away from the practice of Catholicism. We need you.
