Do Mormons celebrate Lent?

No, lent is a Catholic tradition and Mormons are Christians! Actually Catholics are Christians. Also Catholics along with a long line of other Christian Demoninations celebrate Lent. The Word Christian means follower of Christ and Catholics are definitely followers of Jesus Christ. Both Catholics and Mormons are different denominations of Christianity. Catholics are not the only denomination who observes Lent, so it is conceivable that some Mormons would observe Lent (as many Lutherans, Methodists, and Anglicans do). However, most Mormons do not observe Lent, although they do celebrate Easter.

Do Catholics and Mormons believe the same thing?

Some of the beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) are similar, such as their belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the mankind, Baptism is required for salvation, women cannot be in the priesthood, and that the Bible is the word of God. However, the churches are NOT the same and have many beliefs that are very different from one another. For example, Catholics believe in the Trinity and Nicene Creed, Mormons do not. Catholics have nuns and saints, Mormons do not. Mormons have scripture in addition to the Bible, Catholics do not. Mormons believe in modern prophets, Catholics do not.

Mormons and Catholics have a similar belief that they are the original church that Christ set up. Both believe that you are saved through the atonement of Jesus Christ AND works. Protestants are a break off of the catholic church and share many similar ideas with them but believe that they are saved through the atonement alone. The main difference between Mormons and catholics is that Mormons believe that they have a prophet who is the prophet of the church and for the world who receives direct revelation from God. They also claim to have the restored original priesthood and many other things.

What are the contributions Puritans Catholics Quakers and Mormons made to the founding of the US in timeline format please?

I'm not sure about the Puritan Catholics but I know that the Mormon church or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (as it is formally known) was not established until 1830. So it obviously had no effect on the founding of the US (it has influenced other laws, procedures, etc. afterwards).

Who brought the first Mormons to the us?

Nobody. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in the US - so the first Mormons were already in the US! :) If you are speaking of the first Mormons to move from another country to the US, rather than the first Mormons ever in the US, the answer is still nobody. The first Mormons to move from another country to the US came from Canada, and were not 'brought' by any specific person, only encouraged to move so that they could be nearer to the main body of the church.

What is the difference between Mormon and Catholic?

Both Catholics and Mormons claim to have a line of priesthood authority back to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church believes that their line of authority descends unbroken all the way back to Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) believes that the Catholic Church lost this authority somewhere along the way, and that it has been restored to them. Both Mormons and Catholics believe that one must be baptized to enter heaven. Catholics have a tradition of baptizing infants, to remove original sin, and make salvation possible. Catholics usually baptize by immersion or pouring water over the forehead. Catholics *never* "sprinkle" as is common among protestants. Mormons baptize by immersion and will only baptize people age 8 or older because they believe that little children are innocent. Mormons also believe that an unbaptized person can accept a baptism performed in their behalf after their death, so they perform baptisms for their dead ancestors. Catholics believe in the Trinity - one God in Three Persons. Mormons believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three individual beings. Catholics use only the Bible as scripture. Mormons use the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price, in addition to the words of their current leaders. Mormons do not pray to Jesus, or through Mary or any saints, as many Catholics do. They pray to God the Father through Jesus Christ only. Culturally, Catholics members tend to be more liberal than Mormon members. Mormons tend to be more strict about dressing modestly, following their health code, and avoiding secular activities on the Sabbath. There are some very conservative or strict Catholics, and some very liberal Mormons, so this is just a generalization. Catholics have vocations in which God calls them to dedicate their lives totally to the Church (such as sisters, nuns, monks, and priests). This can be compared to Mormon missionary service, although Mormon missionary service is temporary and Catholic vocations are lifetime commitments. Structurally, they are quite similar. The Catholic Church has the Pope at the head, with Bishops overseeing various geographical regions or departments. The Mormon church has the Prophet at the head, with Apostles and Seventies overseeing various geographical regions and departments. Local congregations are organized into geographic groups (Catholic Diocese or Mormon Stake). Additionally, a central headquarters (Catholics in Rome, Mormons in Salt Lake City) is the home of most of the international leadership. Both Mormons and Catholics will only ordain men to the priesthood. In addition to these differences, Mormons and Catholics have few similarities in belief, but some in the hierarchical structure of the churches, though they both have a pretty strict moral code. The two churches often support each other in various pursuits. Examples of collaboration between the two churches can be seen in the "related links" below.

Do Mormons believe in the Virgin Mary?

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called "Mormons") believe that Mary was the mother of Jesus, and that she concieved him of God, not man. They do not pray to her or have statues of her as many Catholics do, however.
