A LAYMAN'S LOOK AT THE JOURNEY OF FAITH

Welcome!

eCatholicism.org is a collection of Internet Resources with up-do-date and current information regarding the Church's interaction with the modern world, politics and society. Besides being a resource for information, eCatholicism.org will also offer our visitors the ability to proclaim the Good News in new ways, to serve as witnesses to the Saving Power of our God and to re-affirm their identity as Catholic communities to a world which desperately needs to hear the Gospel message - now more than ever before.
