My name is Bryan Mercier, founder of Catholic Truth, a non-profit Catholic ministry. I am overly excited to share with you this ministry that God has called me to and all the lives that we desire to change and transform through it!

WHY THIS MINISTRY EXISTS?
In college, Jesus completely transformed my life like the Apostles on Pentecost. He filled me to overflowing with the Holy Spirit and gave me a mission. Whereas I used to dress in all-black, carry weapons, and often live in a state of anger, sadness, loneliness, and depression; Jesus radically transformed my life and filled me to overflowing with love, joy, peace, and new life! This is what I desire for others and why this ministry exists. Our passion here at Catholic Truth is to share that love and joy with as many people as possible and to help them to encounter Christ in a life-changing way. We also wish to rebuild our Church and to let the Holy Spirit and His truth shine brightly once again.

OUR MINISTRY GOALS
Many Catholics and non-Catholics today are lost, confused, hurting, broken, and spiritually dead; they are walking away from God and the church in droves, especially our young people. Why have they all but disappeared? Why are so many churches closing? And the scandals!!! Our church started by Jesus Christ has forgotten her identity over the last 50+ years. Just as St. Francis was called to rebuild the church in the 12th century, so are we again today!

Can you hear the call?? It's time to reform our church! It's time to bring the dead back to life and the wayward back home. It's time to educate, catechize, train, equip, inspire, heal, plant, grow, and harvest once again. Our goal is to help Catholics to know, love and live their Catholic faith with purpose and passion every day, to personally encounter Jesus Christ, and to have a deep and abiding relationship with Him. We also seek to reach our young people, teens and young adults, a segment of the population that has all but abandoned the faith. Will you help us to reach them and countless others?

We are fervent and passionate about our work and the challenges we face which will be accomplished through a variety of means including: life-changing retreats, YouTube and social media, audio and visual, podcasts, blogs, books and literature, conferences, online-trainings, workshops, evangelization initiatives, youth and young adult ministry, and more. Through these same means, we also seek to reach out to the lost and to those who have left the church, grown lukewarm, or have lost faith altogether.


WE NEED YOU!
This is why we need your help. We are looking for people who see the problem, are concerned, and wish to be part of the solution. This ministry cannot exist without generous souls to join our team and to help us grow and expand. Patreon is different than other platforms as it offers continuous monthly support which enables us to work, grow, and provide a plethora of outreach opportunities. Your support of $50, $100, $500 or more a month, or whatever the Lord inspires you to give, would help us immensely. This is the easiest and most helpful way for our ministry to operate. Please see tiers to the right, or down below if on a phone.

However, occasionally, some people prefer to donate a large sum once a year, or to give bi-yearly, or quarterly. Others prefer to help fund certain projects. These options are perfectly viable. Please email us at: [email protected] for these options.

Without support, we cannot exist and do the work of God. Once you join our team, you become a Patron, a part of the work of God, and you have a direct hand in helping to reach souls and make a difference for Christ.

Please be as generous as possible! We are not feeding hungry children in Africa. Rather, Catholic Truth works to feed, nourish, and sustain souls - young and old, rich and poor, Catholic and non-Catholic, believers and unbelievers alike in our country and around the world.

Help us create a spark to set our Church on fire!

For our operational budget and expenses, see to the left, or below in on a phone.

Thank you, and God bless you.

  • "Thank you! Because of your YouTube videos, I am coming back to the Catholic Church."
  • "The retreat with Bryan was amazing and completely changed my life! Before the retreat, I didn’t believe in God, but after, I did very deeply. I thought Bryan's talks were really informative and answered all the questions I had. I now pray every single day, attend Mass, and even pray at school. This retreat has totally changed the way I think for I fully believe in God now and have a complete faith."

                   Teens praying very devoutly at one of my retreats
  • "This was THE best retreat I have EVER been on. It really was amazing!!! Thank you so much!"
  • "I watch all your YouTube videos, and these videos have kept me in the Catholic Church and help me to understand my faith."
  • "This was the best retreat of my life! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to experience this!! It has definitely changed my life and I can't wait to continue strengthening and growing my faith!!! Thanks so much."
  • "I was just about to become an atheist because I thought science disproved religion. Then I came across your YouTube channel and watched all of your videos. They were so helpful and informative, and they literally saved my faith. Thank you! I am now back to church and am even attending Catholic young adult events. I feel my faith is more alive than ever." 
  • "I just wanted to thank you because the retreat today was the best retreat I’ve ever been to. I got so much out of your talks, and the prayer service was very powerful for me. Thank you for praying over me too. My home life is anything but pleasant, but the prayer service helped me to just let go for a while and be with God. I felt him really listening and everything was overwhelming... in a good way! This retreat was such a breath of fresh air in my life and I can’t thank you enough for that."

  • “I am so impressed with Bryan’s passion and knowledge of the faith. He held the attention of every student in the room including all the chaperons! He really opened their eyes and gave them practical ways of keeping the faith. My students loved him and were truly inspired by him.”
  • “You are a huge reason I came back to God. When you were speaking about love, I was talking through your whole speech, and you called me out on it. You came right up to me and said, 'God loves YOU so much and is in love with YOU.' Then, when the prayer service came, God’s love hit me, and I opened my heart to Him. That day changed me. Now, I live my faith out fully, and I’m discerning a vocation to religious life! Thank you!!"

                                  Speaking at a Men's Conference
  • "Because of you, I have decided to stay Catholic. I had both feet practically out the door, but everything you taught makes sense, and I will attempt to live my faith more."
  • "Your talk at the Men’s Conference was awesome! You brought down the house!! Your talk was even better than the Cardinal’s. Everyone just loved it, and I have already been hearing positive feedback from all the men who were touched by it. We most certainly will have you back for next year’s conference."
  • "Bryan was absolutely wonderful at our men’s retreat. He was outstanding and touched a lot of souls! We loved the energy and deep faith he put into the talk, and we have heard great feedback from the men."
