What We Believe… Why We Believe It—the weekly bulletin insert to educate your parishioners!
No one disputes that today’s Catholic lacks knowledge of the faith. That's the reason so many are leaving the Church (6.5 people leave for every one who becomes a Catholic)—they simply don't know the faith. But the What We Believe… Why We Believe It system can change all that. Within a year of reading What We Believe… Why We Believe It, your parishioners will know exactly what they believe… and be able to defend those beliefs.
What We Believe… Why We Believe It works because…
It's intrusive (70% of Catholics get 100% of their information from the weekly bulletin)
Each issue is in engaging
Far from boring catechism, each issue is highly informative of orthodoxy without being “highbrow"
