Catholic.com is a storehouse of answers to your questions about the Catholic Faith. If you have a question, we recommend you first try the website’s search function. Type your question in the search field on the front page, and the top matches will appear. You can filter the results by content type (e.g., radio, video, Q&A).
If a search does not turn up the information you are seeking, there are four ways you can submit a question to our apologists: call our radio program, Catholic Answers Live; use the "Ask your question" button on the left side of this page; contact us at the office; or write to us by mail.
