Catholic Faith Exploration (CaFE)

CaFE: A valuable resources which caters to a wide range of people

  • An introduction to non catholics and other denominational christians
  • Provides basic information and a source of encouragement for returning catholics and youth
  • Informative resource for catholic parenting, the mass, sacraments and evangelisation
  • Enriches faith in those who are well on their spiritual journey


CaFE products are produced by Catholic Evangelisation Services in UK, a legal entity owned, operated and copyrighted by CREW TRUST Charity No 277425 in the U.K. They were officially launched by Bishop Mark Coleridge eight years ago in Melbourne, at the Archdiocesan Offices, at a special gathering and after receiving full support and encouragement from Archbishop D. Hart.

“The need for education in faith for Catholics has never been greater – not just to enrich personal faith, but to equip the whole Church for  mission. That is why I am keen to recommend to you the CaFE program, which has already been a big help to  many people and parishes. The video on Baptism can help us all to explore more deeply our baptismal calling from which the Church’s mission comes. May CaFE provide for Catholics not just education but the energy of the Holy Spirit.”
Archbishop Denis Hart, Melbourne, Australia


“These days Catholic people need more and are hungering for more. The CaFE presentations have shown themselves a very effective parish-based way of leading people to see more of Jesus and understand more of what the Catholic Church believes and teaches. We need not just wishes or words but concrete strategies, and the CaFE programme is one of the best I know. I have no hesitation in recommending it far and wide.”
Archbishop Mark Coleridge, Canberra and Goulburn, Australia.
