LIVING THE CATHOLIC FAITH IN THE 3RD MILLENIUM
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.

But faithfulness to these ideals very often seems to take a less prominent role in today's society and to be very much threatened in our own time. These times call for a strong, courageous witness to the sacredness of life, of creation, of human dignity. What is required is a witness to justice and peace and to our common brotherhood in the family of mankind.
