Know our Faith

Living our faith requires the understanding a variety of topics. "Know our Faith" contains a collection of useful reference links to help anyone interested in furthering or refreshing their knowledge of our basic faith.

There are two large areas that have been grouped together for presentation purpose:

  • Catholic Social Teaching: this is an essential and important part of Catholic faith. It is a very large area and encompasses many aspects of how we should conduct our daily lives. It is only covered here by providing two well known sources below - which provide many detailed links for further reading.
  • Sacraments: they are also covered in its own Section on this website (see Left Menu). But for convenience, they are also listed here together with other sources.

Note: we hope to grow this alphabetical listing over time with your help. If there is a topic you are interested in learning more about or a link you think others would find useful, kindly email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will consider them in consultation with our pastor.
