WHY Catholic?

Perhaps you find that you are struggling emotionally on a day-to-day basis and your life has become unfulfilled and in need of some direction.   That the person you have become is not the person you thought you would be or the person you want to be.  Maybe you have had a calling to live a more spiritual, religious life, but have not been to church in many years, however you know that you want to return to a Christian based life.  In this often confused and hurting world there are many reasons for people to be searching for happiness and something more in their lives, but they do not always know where to turn.

If you are seeking out different religious points of view and exploring different types of Christian faiths, your journey to find contentment and emotional well being may lead you to the Catholic Church.  The Catholic Church is one of the oldest religious institutions in the history of the world maintaining unity, diversity and tradition over a course of twenty centuries.  The Catholic Church was started by Jesus Christ and has followed sacred scriptures for more than 2,000 years while guiding the faith and beliefs of millions of followers.

The Catholic family is made up of every race that spans the globe; young and old, rich and poor, men and women.  It is one of the largest charitable organizations on the planet starting hospitals to care for the sick and orphanages to aid the poor.  It upholds and protects all human life and the institution of marriage and family.  And in this world that is hurting and confused it is one place that is consistent and welcoming to all types of people from all over.  The Catholic Church can help fill voids and can help you find peace.
