“’Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you; and now he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you.’” This first proclamation is called “first” not because it exists at the beginning and can then be forgotten or replaced by other more important things. It is first in a qualitative sense because it is the principal proclamation, the one which we must hear again and again in different ways, the one which we must announce one way or another throughout the process of catechesis, at every level and moment.” ~ Pope Francis

For more than two thousand years, established by Jesus Christ himself, the Catholic Church has safeguarded and handed down to each generation the fullness of the Christian faith.  We invite you to bring your questions to Jesus.  Healing, forgiveness, and peace are available to you in the Catholic Church.  Jesus is knocking — will you answer?
