Should I Stay or Leave the Catholic Church?

10-14-2018David Lins

I recently saw an article called, “Should I Stay or Leave the Catholic Church?”

The Church is older than your age. Why would I say this? It is only when we fall into the relativistic culture of our time that we mistakenly believe that this is as bad as it has ever been. As if "our experience" during our years on earth is the only perspective.

The Diocese of Phoenix requires that volunteers in a parish complete the Safe Environment Training (SET) program. The program consists of a Foundation Class and an Online Renewal Video.


RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Why would people remain Catholic despite all the news? Why are people still joining the Church? I’ll give you a hint: It’s the Founder, not the people.


Help Wanted: Sacristans and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Do you desire to serve God and your fellow parishioners? Do you want to learn to assist the priest at Mass?

Small Christian Communities are groups of 6-12 parishioners who meet in each other’s homes twice a month for an hour to grow in their faith through prayer and a sharing of the upcoming Sunday Gospel reading.
