Surfing the Catholic Web

Surfing the Catholic Web July 25, 2020

There is a deluge of Catholic content online. Four decades ago there was almost nothing.  You would have to go to public library or the bookstore if you wanted gather information regarding any topic, including information about your faith. Now the knowledge  is available in your living room or you can access this portable library while you go down the street walking your dog.

But it can be hard to keep track of and remember all the cool Catholic places that are available on the big world wide web. This is why I have created this post. It is a listing of some of best, most popular, and useful Catholic websites out there.  I have included a variety of interesting and unique sites that will give you content to enrich your spiritual life, become a better educated Catholic, use as a handy resource for writing and save you from boredom with fun fascinating Catholic things.

Meet up with other Catholics who share your particular niche, including that recipe you might want to try and make, or meet your future love of your life.

It’s all here for easy access.

Browse by category.

Click on something you always go to.

Or try clicking on something new.

This particular post may be expanded in the future as I discover other new, interesting and exciting sites. I have not included  every good site out there and as you read through this,  you might think I should have added such and such. Maybe I will later, and also not every site that calls itself Catholic is worth going to for some reason or other.

Years ago a great article came out with the similar theme of navigating the Catholic web.  It is a useful tool with a smaller and more explanatory focus of what is presented here.  I let her end this section of the article and begin the next section of your free resource below.


Chances are you’re no stranger to the Internet and that you have some favorite Catholic sites, too. I’ve found, though, through my work both locally in our small parish — and through nationally speaking and writing — that many Catholics just don’t know what’s out there. The world of Catholic content on the Internet is an ocean, not a stream, and like the ocean, it has many hidden depths.
