Welcome | Introduction | Invitation
Welcome to this pastoral website for all people of good will, and especially for all my fellow Catholic Christians! While it was at Antioch that the followers of Christ were called Christians for the first time, it was also at Antioch where Christians called themselves Catholics for the first time. The designation Catholic Christian can also be found in the Confessions of Saint Augustine, who is one of the greatest Catholic Christians of all time.
This spiritual website contains my personal reflections as a Catholic Christian. I hope that my prayerful words will introduce you to the Catholic Christian lifestyle and invite you to identify yourself as a Catholic Christian as well. In this website, I will share with you the spiritual resources that have helped me embrace Catholic Christianity as our spiritual path forward. First and foremost, I recommend to you the ChristLife course, which is an important background theme throughout this entire website.
Won’t you please join me in identifying yourself and living out your life as a faithful Catholic Christian believer? Catholic Christianity is the only lifestyle that is really worth living. So, let us look upward in faith, move forward in hope, and lead onward in love to new life in Christ. As Catholic Christians who are praying, learning, and serving together as intentional disciples of Christ, we have the blessed assurance that we are truly on the right side of salvation history.

I am Father James Dvorscak, and my prayer is that this website will help you discover the holy wisdom of a Catholic Christian identity.

Every Catholic Christian has a dual vocation, to holiness of life and to spreading the gospel. May we excel in both of these endeavors!

What is the Catholic Church? The Catholic Church is Evangelical but not Protestant. It is Orthodox, but not Greek or Russian. It is not denominational, but pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the faith of the Apostles since the day of Pentecost which was nearly two thousand years ago. It was at Antioch that the followers of Jesus were first called Christians. But it was also at Antioch that Christians called themselves Catholics. Thus, we have been Catholic Christians from the first century A.D. Welcome to the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Christian Church! We are a faith community of prayer, learning, and service. So, come and join us intentional disciples of Jesus Christ! Looking upward in faith and moving forward in hope, we are leading onward in love to new life in Christ. Welcome to Catholic Christianity, founded by Jesus Christ on the faith foundation of Scripture and Tradition!
