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.
