My Catholic Faith Delivered


My Catholic Faith Delivered is far more than on online course. It is a platform that also houses the Certification Management System. Our system tracks and stores progress, reports and certifications for yourself, your students and/or your catechists. It also enables group administrators to post notifications and discussions for their groups or classes. In other words, paper trails and file cabinets are a thing of the past! Administrators are now able to create and manage their classes 24/7 with the ease and click of a button.

Our courses provide in-depth learning programs and video tutorials on the web for all levels of knowledge of the Catholic faith. This is accomplished by combining Catholic content with innovative technology. It is the ideal program for a teacher or a catechist looking for resources and courses, and for a Catholic who simply wants a better understanding of the faith. These fantastic courses are available on the Internet anytime, anywhere-making learning convenient and fun. Our dynamic courses feature engaging lessons, interactive activities, games, voiceovers, and immediate assessments that give real-time feedback on learner progress. Many of our courses are available in Spanish, as well!

Why Do Catholics Dress Up for Mass?


Because if we love someone, we should honor him with both our souls and our bodies.

Why do we dress up for weddings, funerals, and certain jobs? To honor those whom we love or those whom we serve. In the Scriptures we read: “Worship the Lord in holy attire” 1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 29:2, 96:9. And, the Catholic Catechism teaches that our gestures and our clothing “ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our guest” in Holy Communion CCC 1387.

Clothes say something about what we think, what we value. They also influence how we behave and feel. Sunday is special, and God’s House is special. Some things are really important, and our clothing and demeanor ought to reflect this truth.

The exterior reflects the interior, and God definitely deserves the best we have inside and out! This is also why altar dressings, items for the Mass, vestments the priests wear etc., are normally the best we can manage – made from expensive materials and adorned with gold, silver and jewels. However, we have to remember that our fancy dress clothes should be reflecting that our soul is just as dressed up.

Dressing properly for Mass means nothing if we have no love in our hearts.
