About FAITH Catholic

FAITH Catholic exists for one purpose – to connect people with Jesus and his Church.

FAITH began in 2000 as a magazine for the Diocese of Lansing, and in 2003, began publishing for other dioceses and Catholic organizations. In 2009, FAITH merged with the diocese’s 40-year-old liturgical publisher, Liturgical Commission Publishings, to form FAITH Catholic. FAITH Catholic also hosts Masstimes.org, a powerful tool for travelers to locate a church and Mass near them. This is paired with FAITH’s catholiceventfinder.com, a calendar site that allows users to create and find Catholic events. > Read more About FAITH Catholic!
