LITURGICAL YEAR 2023
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 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Entrance Antiphon for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
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.
Please Note: Last year our staff took a much-needed summer vacation by posting ‘encore’ editions from previous years. Unfortunately, Liturgical Year 2023 has taken a toll in personal tragedies, resulting in loss of the necessary time-lead for granting of the Imprimatur. Consequently, we must now take a 3 month Fall break to gain back time for submission to the diocesan Censor Librorum. September through November issues will revisit previous years’ editions. December will usher in Advent and new LY 2024 issues of the three Faith Supplements. (Ignore calendar dates—the Liturgical designation is accurate.)
Please note that The Catholic Tugboat is intended for use by parent/teacher with the child.
