The Word Catholic Means “Universal”
Ave Explores: Catholicism Around the World celebrates the cultural richness of the faith that shines throughout the globe. While the core beliefs of Catholicism are the same everywhere, this four-week multimedia series focuses on the diversity of practices, traditions, and the health of the Church in different corners of the world—in the Americas, Asia and Oceania, Africa and the Caribbean, and in Europe. Because Ave Maria Press is a ministry of the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers, we share the work of Holy Cross across the sixteen countries in which it serves.
