Check out the fantastic free resources on some of these amazing Catholic sites:

Made For Glory:
Made for Glory have created some fantastic videos to support us in our faith through solid teaching and formation. Definitely worth a click.

Real Life Catholic:
Chris Stefanick’s organisation Real Life Catholic aims to ignite a bold, contagious faith in the heart of every Catholic, by building a movement of Catholics who share the beauty, power and truth of the Gospel with a world that has largely forgotten.

A great site run by young Catholics for young Catholics! This page has loads of great posts on all things Catholic!

Chastity Project:
An incredible site for all young people! Jason Evert’s Chastity Project site has advice and resources on living a pure life, and finding true love.

The Porn Effect:
There is a bombardment of impure material which hits young people through the internet. Pornography attacks our purity and damages our faith. This site, run by expert Catholic chastity speaker, Matt Fradd, fights back.

Emotional Virtue:!/home
A beautiful site created by Sarah Swafford for young ladies. Click on the “Audio & Video” and the “Articles” for some brilliant resources for girls!

Women Made New:
A great site created by Crystalina Evert which encourages and supports women in need of personal healing, empowering them to become the women God created them to be.
