Resources

Pope Benedict once wrote that the Christian faith is, above all, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As with every relationship, growth in love entails growth in knowledge: in order to love someone more, we need to know more about them.

The resources listed below are designed to help you grow in knowledge -- and therefore, in love -- of God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Church. Whether you are a Newcomer to the faith, ready for something a little bit Deeper or something more Advanced, you will find resources here.

Below are recommendations for both personal and group study.  If you are ready to jump into group study but don't know how to get started, check out our Small Groups Guide.
