"In the humble signs of bread and wine, changed into his body and blood, Christ walks beside us as our strength and our food for the journey, and he enables us to become, for everyone, witnesses of hope." - Pope St. John Paul II

Our Vision

A growing, faithful Catholic church that understands, believes, and is immersed in the Holy Mass and Real Presence of the Eucharist.

Our Mission

To educate, inspire, and share the beauty of the Mass and the miracle of the Eucharist deepening our relationships with Christ and His Church.

Our Purpose

We use digital media to help Catholics to understand, believe, love, and fully experience the Eucharist and Mass.

It sometimes begins with doubt…

At least that was my story. I was a cradle Catholic, and had never considered the truth of what the Church teaches. According to polls on U.S. Catholics, I was not alone. In fact, nearly 70% of U.S. Catholics believe the bread and wine are mere symbols and are NOT the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Over 40% of those Catholics do not know what the Church teaches on transubstantiation. Over 45% of Catholics have never been to Adoration or have only been once. And only 17% of U.S. Catholics attend Mass weekly.

This sad news is true, but we also know that…

80% of Catholics that do know what the Church teaches believe in the Real Presence. And of those that attend Mass weekly, 90% believe in the Real Presence. 

When Catholics attend Mass weekly and know Church teaching they believe in the Real Presence, which is the SOURCE and SUMMIT of our faith! (CCC 1324)

And this is why Bread exists: we use digital media to educate, inspire, and share the beauty of the Mass and the miracle of the Eucharist.

our work

It is known that digital media plays an important role in our lives. Whether it is connecting with friends, getting our news, political debates, work, or even just entertainment, digital media occupies a great deal of our time and energy. This is why it is so important that Bread exists. We use digital media to connect with, and impact, Catholics and fallen away Catholics to ensure a deeper connection with Christ and His Church  specifically through the Mass and the Eucharist, which is the Source and Summit of our faith.

But Bread isn't your typical non-profit...

Bread is a hybrid of laity, clergy, and the boutique digital marketing firm, Him + Her Digital Co. Him + Her Digital Co. has worked with a myriad of Catholic clients from the Vatican to The Veil Removed and helped those clients reach over 100 million people in 2023.

Bread is uniquely positioned with expert leadership to attain its very ambitious goals.
