The Catholic Information Center invites seekers from other faiths or no faith at all to an understanding of the teachings and way of life of the Catholic Church. We also offer a deeper and more reflective awareness of the faith for those who are already members of the Catholic Church. Our courses are offered in the welcoming spirit of the Paulist Fathers whose mission is to give the Good News of Jesus a voice in today's world.
Programs and Classes
The Catholic Information Center offers classes and programs for adult religious education and spiritual growth. Our new location features “state of the art” classroom facilities, enabling us to provide top quality programming.
On the Road
Our presenters travel throughout Western Michigan to present our programs in local parish and other settings. For information on how to bring the Catholic Information Center to your parish or local community click here.
With the launch of this website, we will continue developing our outreach through Internet Media. You'll find us on YouTube, and you can hear our podcasts. If you'd like to sample a podcast listen here. Our state of the art classrooms will soon make it possible for us to become a virtual Catholic Information Center. Stay tuned.
