Being Catholic Today

As Catholics in today's world, we are called upon to share our faith with the wider community. Trailing in the footsteps of Christ, our witness to the faith is evident in the manner in which we raise our children, interact with friends, family and co-workers and how we engage ourselves in everyday life.  The 2000-plus years of our history testifies to the Catholic mission and ministry.

Where did all this begin? The powerful answer: "in God's revelation". It is our belief that God loves His creation and He has revealed Himself through Scripture and Tradition - taken together as one source, not as two distinct entities.  The ultimate revelation of God is the Incarnation (coming in the flesh) of His Son, Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit.  Our God is a triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit ...  Three Persons in One God, the Trinity.

Our human relationship with the Father and the Spirit happens through the Second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, Son of God.  He came into the world by Divine Plan and His Mission was to show us the way back to the Father.  His Passion, Death and Resurrection, the Paschal mystery, is celebrated in Catholic worship in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  This is the pivotal mystery of Catholic worship.  We believe, in the words of Jesus at the Last Supper, that He has left us His Body and His Blood as food for our souls and the main sustenance that strengthens our faith.

Analogically, we are the Body of Christ.  Our presence in the world is to do what Christ did: infuse the world with the love of the Father.  In this task we are joined by countless angels and saints (the Church in heaven) who join our humble praise of the Eternal Father.

There's more to all this ... ask us.  We are glad to share!
