Our dual mission is firstly to serve as a gathering place for the Catholic Faithful and Inquirers by providing a warm friendly atmosphere for socializing, faith sharing, prayer and religious discussion through the electronic media of the internet. And secondly, to serve as a major resource of information on the Catholic Faith.
