Our Faith

Our FaithOur Catholic faith comprises what we believe and how we live that belief. For 2,000 years, this Catholic faith has been handed down from one generation to next, starting with Jesus Christ passing the faith to the Twelve Apostles. In our own lives, we may receive that faith from our parents, from friends, or even a stranger we meet.

Living as a Catholic includes many wonderful beliefs, practices, and devotions; too many to catalog here. But we hope to provide you with a brief overview of what we believe and how we live that belief.

We hope this resource will be valuable to both interested non-Catholics as well as to those already Catholic who might be looking to deepen the practice of their faith.

If you want to know more about discovering our Catholic faith as a newcomer to the Church or re-discovering the Catholic faith you received at baptism, you may want to start by exploring our Newcomers section.

To learn about what we believe as Catholics, you will want to start with What Do Catholics Believe? But if you want to learn more specifically about the seven sacraments, visit the Sacraments area of our site.

What About the Mass?

The Catholic Mass has a distinct ritual aspect that is different from many other faiths. The deep power of the Mass is in the way it calls to us, like no other prayer ritual can, when we understand the meaning of the ritual, words, symbols and actions that highlight each Mass.  Whether you are Catholic, or just visiting, here are some resources to help you understand the beauty and richness of the Roman Catholic Mass.
