Its mission statement explains its purpose:  Catholic Answers is an apostolate dedicated to serving Christ by bringing the fullness of Catholic truth to the world.

In recent years, we have expanded services to serve children and adults in St. Louis County, Jefferson, St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren, Ste.

Salvation History - The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology is a non-profit research and educational institute that promotes life-transforming Scripture study in the Catholic tradition. The Center serves clergy and laity, students and scholars, with research and study tools undefined from books and publications to multimedia and on-line programming.

Our goal is to be a teacher of teachers. We want to raise up a new generation of priests who are fluent in the Bible and lay people who are biblically literate. For us, this means more than helping people to know their way around the Bible. It means equipping them to enter into the heart of the living Word of God and to be transformed and renewed by this encounter.

We read the Bible from the heart of the Church, in light of the Church’s Liturgy and living Tradition. In this way, we hope to help people experience the heart-to-heart encounter that Jesus’ disciples experienced on that first Easter night, when they knew Him in the breaking of the bread: “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us...while He opened to us the Scriptures?” (see Luke 24:13-37 )
