Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Joe Marotta: Amateur Catholic

I am a 33 year old 'Cradle Catholic' who has been involved in a variety of church roles ever since I pestered the pastor to allow me to be an altar server at age 9 (one year younger than the normal age). I am currently the RCIA coordinator for my parish, a role that I have enjoyed for 7 years. As an Aspirant to the Diaconate, I am discerning whether I am called to the ordained life. I am married, with a 6 year old son and 4 year old triplets (2 boys and a girl). In the 'real world' I am a CPA and CFO.

The Journeyman Carpenter

"Progress, man’s distinctive mark alone
Not God’s, and not the beasts’: God is, they are
Man partly is and wholly hopes to be."
-- Robert Browning
“A Death in the Desert”
