Hi, guys —

I'm 24 and interested in being a Catholic Internet Catechist and Apologist (CICA) on the web.

Admittedly, I do not have a degree. However, I am extremely well-versed in the areas of:

  • religious studies
  • religious philosophy
  • apologetics and evangelization

and would really like to work with AskACatholic.

Thank you,

Heriberto

Hi Heriberto,

Seeing that there are so many needs around the world, locally and internationally, I would encourage you to:

  • study and read the Catechism of the Catholic Church from cover to cover
  • study and read a portion of the Holy Scriptures on a daily basis
  • pray on a daily basis and
  • start your own Catholic support group in your parish, and
  • gather solid Catholic Apologetic books and material

Share your strong interests with your pastor in service to the Church and your local parish.

As I said in another answer:

My vision is a little different then yours. I would like to bring together teams of practicing Catholics who are:

  • Professional Web Designers and Developers, and
  • Catholic Apologists, who are strong on the Church's teachings.

The goal would be to create other web sites across the United States similar to ours that are loyal to the Holy Father and Church's Magisterium.

From my view this would require several things:
  •  a close-knit, prayerful group of Catholics loyal to the Holy Father and Church's Magisterium 
    • with an ability to work together as a team
    • who can take constructive criticism and correction, if needed, from their colleagues 
    • who have a solid knowledge of the Church's teachings
    • who can answer questions about what the Church teaches in a mature, charitable manner and
    • who have at least one person who knows how to develop and maintain
      knowledge base-type web sites. 

Hopefully, visitors see these attributes in our team, most, if not, all of the time.

If any cardinal or bishop of a diocese was interested in this approach, he could develop a training program for what I call CICA's Catholic Internet Catechist and Apologists.

In order to do this work in the long run, you would need to find similar Catholics, with a strong prayer life, who are faithful to the Church's Teachings with a strong interest in Catholic Apologetics.

One of them would have to know how do develop and maintain web sites.

Mike
