“Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope” - 1Peter3:15

St. Gregory's Web-page for Evangelization:
Welcome to Saint Gregory's Parish Web-page for Evangelization: One of the purposes of this page is to provide you with resources with which you can learn more about, and ultimately pass on to others, the splendor of the Roman Catholic Church. Goal 3 of the Pastoral Plan in Element 2: Evangelization is: “Defend or explain the faith when called upon”. The stated objective is to “Equip parishioners with tools necessary to defend their faith if called upon to do so.” Goal 2 shares a similar theme of apologetics. To quote Saint Augustine, “The Catholic Church is the work of Divine Providence, achieved through the prophecies of the prophets, through the Incarnation and the teaching of Christ, through the journeys of the Apostles, through the suffering, the crosses, the blood and the death of the martyrs, through the admirable lives of the saints.”

The definition of Apologetics is the discipline of speaking in defense of a position, in this case, a religious position. from the Greek word apologia or  ἀπολογία meaning, speaking in defense.

Content of this page is divided into four types: recommended reading, tracts from Catholic Answers Tracts, Audio/Video resources, and Prayers. Whether this information begins to spark the kindling within you or adds to the invincible Faith that you already posses, please share the information with others with faith, hope, and charity.
May God Bless you wherever you are on your journey of Faith.

“And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. “ - 1Cor13:2
