Welcome to Why Catholic?

The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois implemented the Why Catholic? Faith Sharing program from 2008-2012.

The information on these pages was compiled to supplement the Why Catholic? materials and may still be used by parishes and individuals to further their understanding of and appreciation for our Catholic faith. The Office for Catechesis would especially like to thank Deacon Al Laabs allowing us to post the Session Supplements he produced.

If your parish is interested in beginning the Why Catholic? process, contact the Office for Catchesis at or 217-698-8500.
