Catholic Bytes Podcast offers short, dynamic talks about the faith. The goal of Catholic Bytes is to offer dynamic catechesis for people on the move. Most people do not have time to sit down and study the faith, so these episodes offer an opportunity to learn more about Catholicism or to grow in your relationship with the Lord, in short, 10-15 minute sessions.
Episodes offer listeners a variety of themes ranging from faith fundamentals, Scripture, dogma, morals, liturgy, spirituality, saints, and Church history.
