Once Catholic is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of St. John the Baptist Province, Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A. The Franciscan Friars are a Roman Catholic order founded by Saint Francis of Assisi. The mission of OnceCatholic.org is to put you back in touch with a face-to-face community of Catholics. Along the way, we want to walk with you as you sort through your issues with the Church. To make contact with a trained pastoral minister regarding questions or concerns about the Catholic Church, please select “Front Door” at the top of this page and follow the links to a “Conversation Corner.”

“God works in so many ways. Your path to this place is special to you, and we’d like to hear it. If you don’t find the “right fit” with any of the other stories here at OnceCatholic.org, we offer you an option to tell your own story.

Meet our online companions and join a moderated online discussion—see who else has dropped in, seeking a listening ear. Look for a real-time, real-place Catholic parish to join. Ask a question or search for an answer in our database of Catholic information. Perhaps somewhere here is what you are seeking!”
