Hello!

What does it mean to be a Catholic digital business? We believe that being a Catholic digital business means that any person or organization whose mission embodies the love of Christ deserves a platform to be heard. It means that we do not work with “clients.” We work with children of God.

We believe that being a Catholic digital business means that every one of our freelancers deserves mentorship, and our wide range of skill levels enables us to keep quality high and prices appropriate.

Similarly, we believe that being a Catholic business means that missions come before money. We trust that God will provide, and we will try our hardest not to turn away a person or organization whose mission we believe in.

We are aware that many Catholic digital businesses are often not quite Catholic, are decades behind today’s technology, or are too business-oriented to serve the missions of their partners. By employing and mentoring college-age students who are devout in faith and savvy in skill, we have found a remarkable balance so we can truly embody what it means to be a Catholic digital business. As our patron, Blessed Carlo Acutis, would say, “Not me, but God.”
