New to the Catholic Faith?
The Church’ is the People that God gathers in the whole world. She exists in local communities and is made real as a liturgical, above all a Eucharistic, assembly.

Whatever you are looking for, whatever your heart longs for, the Catholic Church is here to help you live life to the fullest.
Core Catholic Beliefs
The oldest declaration of the Christian faith, the Nicene Creed, was adopted in 325 AD, even before the books that would make up the New Testament were adopted. The leaders of the Catholic faith needed a method of proclaiming salvation that was shareable and memorable and retained the core truth of the Gospel and the teachings of the apostles. In 381, the Nicene Creed was expanded with additional points of doctrine. Catholics around the world continue to profess this form of the creed every Sunday at Mass.
"I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible."
"I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end."
"I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets."
"I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen."
“The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became man for no other purpose.”
