Our Faith

Our Catholic faith is what we believe and how we live that belief. For 2,000 years, this Catholic faith has been handed down from one generation to next, starting with Jesus Christ to the apostles. In our own lives, we may receive that faith from our parents, from friends, or even a stranger we meet.

Our FaithLiving as a Catholic includes many wonderful beliefs, practices, and devotions; too many to catalog here. But we hope to provide you with a brief overview of what we believe and how we live that belief.

We hope this resource will be valuable to both interested non-Catholics as well as to those who are already Catholic who might be looking to deepen the practice of their faith.

If you want to know more about discovering our Catholic faith as a newcomer to the Church or re-discovering the Catholic faith you received at baptism, you may want to start by exploring our Newcomers section.

To learn about what we believe as Catholics, you will want to start with What Do Catholics Believe? But if you want to learn more specifically about the seven sacraments, visit the Sacraments area of our site.

Over the past several years numerous groups and individuals advocating for the passage or repeal of particular laws or changes to the Massachusetts Constitution have requested permission of the Bishops or local pastors to collect signatures to help accomplish their effort.  Read the Catholic Church Policy Regarding Signature Drive Campaign on Church Property to learn what the Church's position is on the signature drives.
