Introducing The Credo Project

There's been a lot of talk recently in certain channels about what we can do to be better stewards of our faith here on the internet.  There are many of our followers to whom we might be the only Catholics they know and what they experience through us, in seeing how we live our faith through our lives is so important.

As Archbishop Fulton Sheen says:

“There are not one hundred people in the United States who hate The Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they wrongly perceive the Catholic Church to be.”

We want to give our readers the chance to explore our faith, fix misconceptions they may have and direct them towards answers they made need.  So we've created "The Credo Project".  Kendra from Catholic All Year was nice enough to make this lovely button, Bonnie from A Knotted Life found us Catholics Come Home (we're not in partnership with them, we just really love their site) and I just get to claim being the person who asked them for help


This is "The Credo Project". We are a group of bloggers who love the richness and fullness of our Catholic Faith . We want to help our readers grow in their own walk with God and share our own journeys and experiences. Below are buttons you can use, linked to Catholics Come Home, to share the love of your Catholic Faith with your readers.

The Credo Project isn't big and fancy.  There won't be newsletters or websites; it's simply an initiative to get us to be more open about our faith online.  To give friends and visitors the chance to explore and investigate on their own when something we say or do peaks their interest.  Use our buttons, or make your own!  The Credo Project is just about inspiring us to take that step.

Below are three sizes of buttons you can use on a Blogger blog (or anything that runs HTML).
Copy the html text below the size picture you need and copy it into a HTML widget on your blog and bam, you're another member of "The Credo Project".

I'm a little clueless when it comes to Javascript for Wordpress, so if anyone can help me out there I'd appreciate it!

Enjoy and feel free to share "The Credo Project" on your own blog!

  3. Hi Molly, this is a great idea! My first instinct is that there is overlap between this and www.conversationwithwomen.org but at this point all I have is the instinct. Can you think of how we could help each other?

    1. Hi Emily, don't worry I don't think these things overlap. This is just a button a friend made, linked to a website another friend suggested. It's just a tool bloggers are free to use on their blogs as a way to share their faith, particularly if they don't write on the subject a lot. Like I wrote above, it's not a blog or a website in progress, it's just a button. =)
