A New Catholic Website - Check it out!


Catholic Chapter House originated in Ontario, Canada with a reach that expands beyond all borders to meet and inspire Catholic Christians around the world.

The founders of the company felt a stirring in their hearts with God calling them to serve Him and their fellow believers by providing tools needed to live out our lives faithfully and fully by finding Jesus Christ and the teachings of His Church on earth.

The Church defines faith as, “the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that He has said and revealed to us, and that Holy Church proposes for our belief, because He is truth itself. By faith man freely commits his entire self to God. For this reason the believer seeks to know and do God’s will. The righteous shall live by faith. Living faith works through charity.” (CCC 1814, Emphasis added).

Simply believing in God is only a part of the equation for having faith. To believe in God we must know who He is and what He proposes for us. To fully embrace the second half of the virtue of faith we need to learn God’s will, which is found in the teachings of the Catholic Church. From that we can obtain, by the Grace of the Holy Spirit, the virtue of faith in order for us to live more fully. This is what we at Catholic Chapter House hope to achieve personally and for all of our fellow human beings.

Faith proceeds understanding “fides quaerens intellectum”. We encourage all people who are seeking faith to ask God and He will ensure your prayer is answered (Luke 11:9-10). To live in faith is to live in the power of the resurrection.

We hope to inspire you to gain a deeper understanding of the faith and to be re-energized, to go out and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to others and the world.
