How can I learn more about my faith

The good news is there are other men who are working on becoming better men, better husbands, better fathers, and striving to live a holy life.  These men are taking the time to learn more about Jesus and his Church, and working on becoming the man God is calling them to be.  These men are your brothers in faith and are here to support you on the journey to heaven.  Consider spending some time with these men and getting to know them a little better.
