Years ago we didn't need to put the words "Catholic" and "identity" together. We knew we were Catholic and we knew what made us Catholic. Those were the days when everyone was something: Lutheran, Baptist, Jewish, etc. And often the things that we thought made us Catholic were the peripherals, such as meatless Fridays, statues and Marian processions.
When Vatican II decided to prioritize things, we began to downplay some of the devotional elements of our faith. In the name of ecumenism, we minimized our differences and became more comfortable calling ourselves Christians. Unfortunately, one of the side effects is that many Catholics today are not quite sure what makes us different from other Christians. Our programs will show you how to live the gospel, learn and teach the profession of Faith, promote and celebrate the Catholic faith through prayer and the sacraments, informing yourself about moral life and getting involved with your community.
