The Catholic Church, translated as the Universal Church, is bigger than we could ever imagine. Jesus says, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” A family that prays together is the Church. A gathering of friends in the service of God is the Church. A small group Bible study is the Church. Ultimately, the Church is any gathering of people in the name of Jesus under the Apostles, known today as the Bishops.
And these groups make up local parishes that worship together and serve the larger community. At Catholic.church, we are committed to networking these groups to set people and parishes on fire with the love of God. Check out Catholic.church today to get plugged in to a Church community that activates your heart and engages your talents.
Finding a community to grow, worship and serve alongside is easy. Simply use the search feature and enter your city or zip code to find a parish or group near you. If nothing exists yet, don't worry. The Church is 2,000 years old, but we are just getting started. Feel free to start a group and invite your friends. Most importantly, make sure you join your parish and invite others.
