What is the Kerygma? The Kerygma is the foundational narrative of Catholic Christianity which answers the essential core questions of all of our lives.
- Why is there something instead of just nothing at all?
- Why is our world so broken? Why are people so divided?
- Is there any solution to all the problems that we face?
- Do we have a role in making the world a better place?
The Answer. We are the question to which Jesus Christ is the answer. Although we were created, we were captured. But we were rescued, so that we could be restored.

Ultimately, the Kerygma is the truth that will set you free from everything that holds you back from experiencing new life in Christ.
