The Catholic Education Resource Center is a free online archive of the most compelling and well-reasoned arguments for the Faith and living the Good Life. One of the first Catholic websites on the internet, it was established in 1996 by educator Fraser Field to showcase the depth and richness of the cultural and intellectual heritage of the Church. He wrote, "The Catholic Church is not only the great defender of Christian faith in the world but the principal defender of reason as well." We are dedicated not only to preserving this hertitage but also to helping Catholics around the world receive their inheritance.
