Our Faith

Encounter Christ through the history, ministry and witness of the Church on earth.

Our faith empowers us to demonstrate the work of Jesus Christ throughout our daily life. As Catholics, our actions, interactions and prayer joyfully evangelize and share the Word of God.

The word Catholic means universal. The Catholic Church is a universal body of believers, united in Jesus Christ. The Diocese of Cleveland and the Catholic family is made up of every race, age, and walk of life. For centuries, the Catholic Church has served as a welcoming place and guiding light towards heaven.

Our faith reflects the foundations of the Catholic Church that are proclaimed in the Nicene Creed. These foundations include: that the Catholic Church is one, holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. The teachings and practices of the Catholic Church provide a deeper understanding of these four proclamations. They are expanded upon when Catholics actively celebrate sacraments, holy days, and the overall mission and authority of the Church.

“... if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20)
