Why should you go to Catholic church?
You should go to the Catholic Church if you are a member of that faith or embrace its teachings (as explained below) and want to become a member.The primary reason that anyone goes to a Catholic Church is that they believe what it teaches about Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, and take Him at His Word. Catholics believe:
That He only founded one Church, and promised to be with it until the end of time. He appointed St. Peter and his successors to be His visible representative on earth, and He send the Holy Spirit to guide It into all truth.
That It is the only Church in the entire world, in the entire of history that was founded by God, Himself, saving the Jewish religion, of which it is the fulfillment.
That every other Church was founded by a man at some point in history, and none can claim the Divine Guarantee that was given to St. Peter and his successors.
That Our Blessed Lord, Himself, promised that there would be only One Church, HIS Church, and that It would have the means for salvation, and speak with HIS voice.
Catholic Answer Roman is an epithet first commonly used in England after the protestant revolt to describe the Catholic Church. It is never used by the Catholic Church. The question should be "where was the first Catholic Church" as it was not known as the "Roman" Catholic Church until the Middle Ages, before then it was just "the Catholic Church". The first Catholic Church was in Jersualem, read the Acts of the Apostles.
Anyone who rejects the Catholic Church will go to hell because the Catholic Church is necessary for salvation. However, if someone is innocently ignorant of the Catholic Church and its necessity, they may be saved if they cooperate with whatever grace they have. If they are, it will only be through Christ and His Church.
If you are registered at a Catholic church does that mean you are considered a member of the church?
The Anglican Church was a protestant Church that kept many trappings of the Catholic Church. The Puritans were extreme protestants that wanted everything to go, but as the Anglican church in England was the established church, there was little they could do. There were rejected the Catholic Church in toto, and the Catholic trappings that they saw in the Anglican church.

I am a Catholic by birth but I don't go to Church on Sundays and would like to know what other church could I go to and not feel bad?
Haha...no other church! You have the opportunity to see bread turn in to Christ every Sunday and you want to go to another church? No other church has what the Catholic church has. I don't think you realize how special the Holy Mass is. It is a mortal sin to miss mass on Sunday. (In a ROMAN CATHOLIC church.)
*If you are not a Catholic, you cannot be married by a Catholic priest or in a Catholic church. * You need to check that answer above because i don't think you are right. Non Catholics can get married in the Catholic Church. One partner has to be a Catholic and the other should be a baptised Christian but ideally the couple should contact their local priest.
The Catholic Church believes that the Catholic Church is necessary for salvation. However, if a non-Catholic (such as a Jew) is innocently ignorant of the Catholic Church and its necessity, but cooperates with whatever grace they have, they may be "in" the Church without even knowing it. In this circumstance, it would be possible for this person to get to heaven, but if they got to heaven, it would only be through the grace of…
I am a divorced Man and I am a practicing Catholic and was never married in the Catholic Church. Can I marry a practicing Catholic Woman who is a widow in the Catholic Church.?
Answer: The Catholic widow is free to marry. You are also free to marry in the Catholic Church. This is because your first marriage was not a Catholic one and, according to Church law, it should have been. It will be simple matter of speaking to your local pastor and filling out a form to be sent to the diocese.
He was a Christian leader who broke away from the Roman Catholic church and believed that the church teachings should be more accessible to the people?
Martin Luther . Catholic Answer I hate to disagree but nobody broke away from the Catholic Church AND thought that Church teachings should be more accessible to the people. People who broke away from the Church did so because they disagree with and couldn't live according to Church teachings, NOT because they thought they should be more accessible. Martin Luther is a prime example of someone who broke away from the Catholic Church precisely BECAUSE…
If your catholic, it should be conducted in the church. It is a sacrament and a mass is included with such. Vows must be exchanged before a priest in a Catholic church, or in a church or chapel which is approved by the diocese where the ceremony is being held. A catholic ceremony were vows are to be exchanged, cannot, therefore, occur outside.
It depends the defenition of a catholic, if you go by worshiping mary and jesus by devoting your life to them but i am prodestant The Roman Catholic church teaches that all elements of the true church of Christ subsist in the Catholic Church, but whenever one lives a life of goodness and does not deliberately reject God we live in the hope that all are saved and can enter heaven, even if not Catholic
How do you go about getting your children baptized in the Catholic Church when they are no longer babies?
Why not have a look at www.fisheaters.com or www.catholic.com for the answer? They're both excellent sources of facts about the Catholic Church. :) Catholic Answer Yes, it is a sin to disobey the precepts of the Catholic Church. The precepts of the Church are NOT man made, they are distillations, so to speak of what you should be doing if you are trying to love and follow God.
