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 Third Sunday of Easter

Entrance Antiphon for the Third Sunday of Easter


Let all the earth cry out  to God with joy;
praise the glory of his name;
proclaim  his glorious praise, alleluia.
                      Psalm 65:1-2

 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. 

                                Announcement for Jan – May 2024

     Following the deaths that shook our staff, the writers and editors of The Catholic Navigator Apostolate endured  additional trials of illness and injury these past four months. 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 on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 2.

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

Voices from Catholic Land

There is great attention in the Northern Hemisphere about April 8th’s cross-country solar eclipse.  Fr. Raymond de Souza reminds us that the Feast of the Annunciation was moved this year to April 8th as well, because it’s usual day of celebration fell within Holy Week. Moreover, he sees grounds for a spiritual meditation on the coincidence of the Annunciation and the solar eclipse.
