THE EAGLE is the journal of the Basilica of Saint John the Evangelist. Named for the symbol of Saint John, our publication’s mission is a simple but vital one: evangelization. As the “Pope’s Church” in Fairfield County, we strive to provide articles by our Holy Father, our parish priests, laity, and guest authors, that will clarify the teachings of the Catholic Church and inspire every reader to greater holiness through better understanding of the Truth. After all, Jesus said, “If you remain in My Word, you will truly be My disciples, and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32).

As Catholics we are united in our ultimate goal: salvation. May THE EAGLE provide a clearer flight path.
