Why Be Catholic?

We’re Catholic because the eternal God of the universe loves us so much that he sent his only begotten Son to redeem us from our sin, bring us into his divine life, and immerse us in this truth and love.

Essentially, being Catholic is a heavenly gift intended to allow us to become fully human, fully alive, fully invested with the beauty of our awesome God!

In this section of our website, we invite you to explore several aspects of the beauty of Catholicism, and we invite you into a deeper relationship with our Lord, who is Jesus Christ.
