The year 2021 will be remembered as the year when church vandals and hate crimes against people of faith exploded, not just in the United States but in Europe as well.

SOCIAL JUSTICE, BIDEN STYLE

By |2022-01-03T09:42:36-05:00December 23rd, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

In the name of helping families, President Biden wants to reward many of those who broke into our country illegally by making them millionaires. However, American families that are living here legally and elect to place their children in religious child care centers have to wing it on their own. On October 31, Fox News reporter [...]

Halloween is a time when children dress up as monsters and witches. It's also a time when some adults get dressed up, but, unlike the children, they actually think they've adopted a new identity.

By |2021-11-16T14:41:16-05:00November 16th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

In October, President Biden nominated Joseph Donnelly to be the new U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See. Many Catholic media outlets, including Catholic News Service, erroneously claimed he is a "pro-life" Democrat. He is not only at odds with the Catholic Church on abortion, he is pro-gay marriage, against religious liberty, and against school choice. When [...]

ST. SERRA DISHONORED

By |2021-11-16T14:41:18-05:00November 16th, 2021|Categories: Catalyst, Front Page|Tags: |

California Governor Gavin Newsom did what everyone expected him to do when he signed legislation to remove a statue of St. Junípero Serra from the state Capitol in Sacramento.
