What Do Catholics Believe?

The Catholic faith is rich in beliefs and practices. If we had to summarize the faith in three words we would say with St. Paul, “Jesus is Lord” (Romans 10:9) The most privileged statement of what Catholic’s believe is the Apostle’s Creed. One of the best and most comprehensive tools for understanding the Catholic faith is the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Below are some pages with more information on different elements of the Catholic Faith from our website. In the side bar you can find links to some other valuable Catholic resources on the internet.
