Blogs

A blog, is an online journal where individuals or groups communcate information, thoughts, beliefs, pictures, and more. Many Catholics with blogs are members of St. Blogs, which is not a parish, but rather a loosely knit group of Catholics who maintain these personal journals.  Some are "professional" Catholics, including clergy, teachers, writers, and journalists, but most are just ordinary Catholics who share their lives and faith.  You can find many of these blogs listed in the St. Blog's Directory. Some of the most popular Catholc blogs are listed below:
