There are countless resources on the Web that cover all aspects of Catholicism, from Catholic history and teachings, to scripture and prayer, to local parishes and national organizations. As can be expected, the information and views expressed in the resources vary widely.
A good directory to Catholic resources on the Web is Thomas C. Fox's Catholicism on the Web (MIS Press, 1997). The guide is a comprehensive, annotated list of web sites organized into four groups: Catholic Organization, Catholic Ideas, Catholic Activism, and Catholic Transcendence. A copy is available in the Chaplain's Office.
Below is a short list of good starting points for finding information about Catholicism on the Web. The Monks of Adoration website (designated below as "Church Documents etc.") is an amazing compilation of every Catholic issue imaginable (past and present). If you have your own favorite Catholic web site or other religious resource that you'd like to share with others, send to Jill Wishon (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email message providing the site name, URL, and a brief description of the site's contents.
