During the month of August I am studying to enter Coding school in order to better myself and try to get off disability. The Pop-Up-Pope will be available upon request by sending me a message either through this website or at paul@thecatholicword.com

In addition follow me on twitter @thecatholicword for any surprise visits from the Pop-Up-Pope

We believe in God who is our loving Father and creator.  God’s love is limitless and overflows into our hearts and lives.  God has created us out of His love that sustains and supports us daily.
We believe that God sent us his own beloved Son, Jesus Christ, who suffered, died, and rose from the dead, to save us and offer us the gift of eternal life.  ​

People have chosen to enter the Catholic Church for various reasons.  Members of the Church have different understandings of what makes them Catholic or why they are Catholic.  However, there is a common thread that binds all Catholics together.  Catholics belong to a Christ-centered faith community that views Jesus Christ as the foundation.  Catholics share Jesus’ vision and model their lives after Jesus’ example of love.  Catholics are called to care for one another and to use their unique gifts and talents for the good of the community and the world.  Below is a listing of some of the basic beliefs and values of a Catholic:

Notes from the webmaster



​Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.​  -1 Peter 5:6-7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.  2 Timothy 4: 7-8

Can you receive Communion and at what point in Mass does a later arrival not fulfill the Mass obligation?
