Faith is a precious gift from God. As the largest religious media network in the world, EWTN has an important role in educating others about our Catholic faith and spreading the good news of salvation. Our rich and rewarding Catholic faith was communicated by our Lord to the Apostles, and has been handed down through the centuries by His humble servants under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. For the Catholic faithful, you’ll find a sincere presentation of the Church’s teachings in order to help strength your faith and lead a deeper commitment to a life pleasing to our Lord. For non-Catholics, we hope to answer your questions, resolve your curiosity and create a rich environment that will help you one day decide to join us. We invite you to explore our numerous pages of historical faith documents, prayers, teachings, information on saints and other current issues in Catholicism today.
