Your floundering Catholic institution can be saved. Are you building community that turns its eyes towards the common goal of heaven? Whether a school, a parish, or a charity organization, surrounding your members by all that is excellent and filled with beauty, truth, and goodness will create an irresistible environment of intentional disciples. Catholic Excellence seeks to support Catholic institutions in their role serving the Church through best practices, everyday advice, and spiritual nourishment. Transform your deepest desires to be getting yourself and your entire community to heaven.
Be not afraid. Supporting an institution that has existed for over 2,000 years and founded by Christ Himself can be a daunting task. And especially when it comes to implementing change. How many Catholic churches or schools have you encountered with ineffective leaders, dwindling attendance, and stale messaging? Probably more than you want to admit.
The vision of Catholic Excellence is to form a parish and school community as a hub for evangelization, as the place where people encounter Christ. It should be a no-brainer for Catholics to send their children to their local Catholic school. It should be a no-brainer for a man or woman to contact their parish priest if they need support in a time of crisis. Mass on Sunday should be the most anticipated event of the week. Trust, transparency, and truth are what this world needs. And we can do it. Be not afraid.
