The Galley: Food for Thought

We persist in this Apostolate because the Catholic faith is beautiful, because it is true, and because it is good. We persist because the Church is Christ here-present, and, like a ship, protects and advances us toward Jesus Christ until He comes again. We persist because we have been charged with passing on our faith (see Deuteronomy 4:4-7; 11:19).

And, we persist because, to shamelessly co-opt a line from the movie, Chariots of Fire, ‘when we write, we feel His pleasure.’  Contact Us.

Presently, weekly copies of our three Faith Supplements are available for free downloading and printing.

Prayer for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Entrance Antiphon for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In my justice I shall see your face, O Lord;
when your glory appears, my joy will  be full.


We post the sources to all articles in these Faith Supplements each Monday at noon to assist teachers and students in parochial schools and CCD programs. These sources not only support the facts of our articles, but offer more information to all readers. 

                                         Updated Announcement 

     Following the deaths that shook our staff, the writers and editors of The Catholic Navigator Apostolate endured  additional trials of illness and injury. Taking time for the healing required pushed us behind our publication schedule.  Thus, we  are continuing with ‘Catholic Navigator Classics,’ issues from this same period in 2018 until we begin posting new issues for the upcoming Advent season.

              OREMUS PRO INVICEM! (Let us pray for one another!)
