What Is Catholicism?

Catholicism is the most ancient and enduring form of Christianity.  Jesus established his Apostles under the authority of St Peter to go and proclaim his love to the world.  Today the Catholic Church continues this same mission guided by the Bishops, who are the successors of the Apostles, and under the leadership of the Pope, who is the successor of St Peter.  The Catholic Church believes that Jesus becomes truly present in Holy Communion and that we encounter God in a special way in the sacraments of the Church. At St Bonaventure’s, we live this Catholic faith and invite you to come and experience our joy in the Lord Jesus.
