On this page you can download selected church documents. The documents available through this web page are the same as available through official church sources, such as the US Council of Catholic Bishops. What is available on this page is additional "user friendliness." Documents posted here are done on a case-by-case basis. When Deacon Ed finds a document he wants to browse or print in a more interactive way, he will re-create a document with those features and post it here for anyone who wants to have access.
The most common "additions" to the officially published documents are the available of using a linked table of contents in a PDF browser. This enables a reader to find the part of the document that is of particular interest and immediately go to the page of interest.
