About Assisi Media
When Chad and Mari Torgerson first began dating, Chad was just beginning the RCIA process to become Catholic. Chad had been a non-denominational Christian for many years, but he was just starting to explore the Catholic faith. Mari was raised in the Catholic Church and attended Mass regularly, yet was looking for ways to take her faith beyond the pews.
As Chad continued the RCIA process, their faith grew together. Chad learned about the beauty of Catholicism while Mari learned how to apply her faith in new ways. Together, they understand the challenges of becoming Catholic for the first time and trying to re-ignite a childhood faith that is looking for something more. Using that background, they formed Assisi Media to help catechize and re-catechize Catholics at all levels.
With that mission in mind, Assisi Media strives to bring resources for those just starting their faith journey. Whether it is someone’s first look at Catholicism, or their first attempt to take their faith seriously, Assisi Media will offer resources for the average Catholic.
