About Catholicism

What Do Catholics Believe?

Prayer

Prayer is communion with God. Prayer can be public or personal, spoken or silent. The Psalms are prayers we sing.

Scripture

Catholics believe that the Bible is God’s self-revelation written in an inspired and inerrant way.

Saints

The saints are exemplars of how to follow Christ; they teach us how to live faithful and holy lives.

Mary

Mary is the greatest among the saints. At the Annunciation, Mary said “yes” to God and became the Mother of Jesus, the eternal Son of God incarnate.

The Liturgical Calendar

The seasons of the Church follow one universal liturgical calendar.

Papacy & Christian Unity

The Pope is the chief pastor and shepherd of the whole Church.

Catholic Essentials

We follow spiritual law and foundation.

Sacraments

The Catholic Church has defined seven sacraments - instituted by and through the life of Jesus Christ.
