yes! indeed Catholic Church believe in Purgatory. In 1 Peter 3:18-20: " ...He (Jesus Christ) went and preached to those spirits that were in prison..."; a place or State of what we call purgatory where in Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ preached those suffering spirit that fall short because of sins are cleansed, before entering into Heaven. Remember we worship God in Spirit and the membership of the Church is in Spirit. Because of the faith of relatives and friends and of the church; praying together with the Saints and angels in heaven to the Father in Heaven through the Lord Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, help the souls in Purgatory to go to heaven. Like what Martha and Mary did, Lazarus had awaken and live.
