Explore what it means to be Catholic
"EMBRACING Catholic identity is more than simply being a card-carrying member of the church," writes Alice Camille in Ten great things about being Catholic. "Some may settle for a baptism, wedding, and funeral in the church and feel they’ve gotten the best of it. But if you choose to live all the moments in between from the perspective of the Catholic worldview, you can enhance your life beyond your wildest imaginings."
See what Camille outlines as the good things to discover about the beauty and integrity of authentic Catholic living. Add to the list and make it your own.
