As a result of traveling through our faith lives, we realized that there is no purpose to a journey without a destination. By using a Compass, we can stay on the right path (living our lives here on earth in faith and joy) and arrive at the desired destination (life with Christ forever).
Operating as a 501c(3) organization, Compass Catholic Ministries is supported primarily through donations provided by individuals and parishes. The organization is completely staffed by volunteers who generously offer their time, talent and/or treasure to support the mission of Compass Catholic Ministries.
