Even though CATgear has been around since 2000 I had never heard of it. It’s not just a clothing company – it’s a ministry. According to Dominic it’s been their goal from the beginning to help our high school students better understand their faith, specifically with Mary and the Rosary. They started with a ‘HAVE YOU TALKED TO YOUR MOTHER LATELY’ shirt. Next, they wanted the kids to realize that their faith is not an hour a week but all the time, so they came out with the ‘CATHOLICISM IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT’ shirt. Apparently, not only did the kids wear the shirts, but parents, family, and friends began to wear them, too. From that, CATgear was born. CAT comes from three sources; First, Dominic’s last name, CATalano; Second, this ministry is a CATalyst to help others in their faith journey; Third is our CATholic faith which has been around for 2000+ years.
I’m loving my shirt and I hope you buy one for yourself and Catholics you know. To learn more about CATgear and how they are helping schools and ministries raise money please visit their website at http://www.catgear.com/
