Do you have questions about what the Catholic Church teaches or believes? Perhaps you’re puzzled by Catholic devotional practices and rituals. Whether you’re a cradle Catholic or a convert, a person from another faith tradition or a spiritual seeker, we hope this new series will help to answer your questions.
At least once a week we’ll post a new entry on a topic related to the Catholic faith, such as the sacraments, the saints and the Church in the U.S. During Lent, which begins on March 9, we’ll feature articles on various Lenten practices.
Do you have a question you’d like us to consider? E-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
