They should occur on public grounds, Church grounds, holy sites, etc. (not residential areas). Catholic travel agencies should not use this section to promote regular pilgrimages or other trips. Instead, try the Classifieds section or other commercial sections on this site. Those attempting to violate our policies may be banned from further posting on this site.

No events harmful to any of God's creatures.

Be specific in your post, but do not include company names, organization names, speaker names, etc. If you include such detail, your post - and all your future posts - may be subject to auto rejection. As applicable, you may discuss such information privately with interested individuals.

DO NOT NAME ANY business, organization, individual, product, service, website, event, author, book, Catholic material, etc. or provide their contact information in your post. Posts containing such references may be subject to auto rejection. 

Limited to (practicing) Roman Catholics only.

No discussion of unapproved apparitions or private revelations.

We know what the Lord says about divorce, therefore divorce is not a permissible topic for discussion. Do not submit any divorce, child custody, annulment, or "ex-spouse" type issues.

No financial or work-related posts. This section is for faith-type and Catholic family-type issues, not job/work/career related issues, third party "child care" issues, or other non-family interaction, non-faith related matters. Posts regarding home schooling, full-time mothering, and large families are sought and are greatly welcome. Posts which disparage or discourage traditional families may be subject to auto rejection and those who submit such posts may be banned from future posting. (Note: Do not discuss particular home schooling products or job opportunities here. For job opportunities, home schooling items, and other matters, consider the commercial sections of this site.)

No unsuitable topics - e.g. immorality, unchastity, or anything against Gospel or Church teachings.

Do not submit posts involving immoral/illegal activities, sexual topics, controversial/questionable topics, political matters, etc.

Posts should not contain gossip, derogatory comments, despair, inappropriate/explicit statements, abusive remarks, emotional rambling, judgments regarding others' motives, or "ranting and raving" type dialogue.

Do not include names, locations, or other identifying information. 

Do not discuss personal matters, sins, or other information that should be kept private.

No "feminist", "charismatic", or "new age" posts.

Topics such as "Taking up the Cross / Bearing Suffering" are intended as a resource to help others deal with suffering and challenges and not for the discussion of personal problems. Do not discuss particular details of one's cross, causes of suffering, individual's motives, etc. Instead, provide tips, helps, remedies, etc. in light of our Catholic faith. (Note: For discussion of personal problems, consult a good priest or other qualified individual.)

To keep this section informative, posts should have a definite point and not be structured in the form of a question. If you have a Catholic faith or Catholic family type question, consult a good priest, an appropriate, traditional catechism, or other suitable resource. (Note: If desired, you may also consider privately contacting individuals who have included their e-mail address. If so, use caution)

This section is intended for the sharing of advice, help, insights, etc. Therefore, please avoid unproductive complaining, worrying, despairing, etc. Please note that positively-phrased posts are preferred.

Each post on this site is independent. Do not refer to previous submissions (yours or others) with your post.

No posts advocating religious indifferentism (i.e. dangerous errors such as "all religions are equally good" or "all good people go to heaven") or scandalous interfaith activities.

Submit truthful information only. If in doubt, do not submit. Please be sure to stick to the facts and avoid editorializing.

Before submitting, be sure that your post is appropriate for this section. This section is not for announcements, answered prayers, good news stories (i.e. conversion stories, etc.), prayer requests, saintly involvement, or other topics already featured elsewhere in this site. For section information, click here.

Seniors: Although you are more than welcome to post here, you may find the Catholic Seniors section more tailored to your needs.

Limit one post per person, per topic.

Please do not submit posts already listed or similar to those already submitted. 

Do not submit untruthful posts or copyright protected material. 

Note: If you have a Catholic Life/Catholic Family question or need assistance, please consult a good priest, an appropriate, traditional catechism, or other suitable resource. 

Catholic Seniors Section

"Add Post" option is for Roman Catholics only.  

Do not attempt to solicit to seniors. 

No discussion of the following topics: investments, trusts, credit cards, pharmaceuticals, refinancing, wills, legal matters, financial matters, doctors / specific health concerns, "miracle cures", "work at home opportunities", sales/commission opportunities, or specific products, services, companies, or organizations, etc. 

Please keep complaints to a minimum and avoid unnecessarily discussing past sins. Discussions of pain/suffering should be productive and avoid despairing. Instead, please emphasize ways to bear one's crosses. If you need assistance with a difficult burden, please contact a good priest or qualified professional. If desired, you may also contact individuals who have provided their e-mail address (if so, use caution).

This section is limited to Roman Catholics only. Submit only items in full communion with the Holy See. No inappropriate subject matter. Spiritual matters preferred. 

Seniors should be especially cautious about providing personal information and e-mail addresses. Note that you may put "N/A" rather than provide personal information or e-mail addresses where applicable. Have you read the introduction to this section?

Limit one post per person, per topic.

Church Talk (FRCC) Section

Posting in this section is limited to (practicing) Roman Catholics only.

Before posting, you should note that there are a large number of questions on this section's Add form. Although many of the questions offer the option "N/A", posts which contain more than a few "N/A's" may be subject to auto rejection. Therefore, you may wish to prepare your answers to these questions in advance (e.g. offline). For your convenience, we have created a worksheet to help you prepare offline (click here for worksheet). Before completing this worksheet, you should be sure that the church you are posting about is not already listed (see links below).

Submit Roman Catholic churches in full communion with the perennial Magisterium only. Carefully avoid submitting any churches which don't follow traditional Church teachings (e.g. "modernist", "progressive", or "charismatic" churches) or which seek to change traditional teachings. 

No "independent" or schismatic churches (as defined by the Holy See).

Before submitting your post, make sure the church is not already listed. Click here to view all current church listings in this section. To search the current listings, click here. Note: If you submit posts regarding churches which are already listed, your post - and all your future posts (to this and all other sections on this site) - may be automatically rejected.

This section is designed for listings of exceptionally reverent or beautiful churches, or churches with a special significance (i.e. churches with historical significance, churches with certain special characteristics - such as large relic collections, etc.). It is not for superficial matters (e.g. "fun"/"friendly" churches). If you submit inappropriate material here, your post - and all your future posts to this site - may be rejected. Please be sure to follow all instructions carefully.

Submit information only about churches you have visited personally (not those you have merely read about or heard about). No third party posts.

Do not submit untruthful or unverified information.

Churches may be subject to frequent changes. Therefore, please post only about churches you have visited personally within the last three (3) years. If it has been longer than three years since you've last seen the church, do not submit information about the church.

No information about unapproved apparitions or other unapproved occurrences/phenomena. (To be "approved", an apparition/occurrence, etc. must have official ecclesiastical approval at the proper hierarchical level.)

Do not attempt to promote your parish here if it does not meet the criteria for this section! [Note: Catholic churches may be listed at no charge in the MCS Directory. For more information, click here.] 

This section is currently limited to Roman Catholic churches in the U.S.A. only. Do not submit churches outside the U.S.A.

Do not attempt to advertise here or otherwise promote your products/services/website, etc. Do not name any business, organization, individual, product, service, website, Catholic material, etc. or provide contact information. Posts containing such references may be subject to auto rejection. (Instead, click here  for information regarding advertising in the commercial sections of this site.)

If you are unsure about a question on the Add page, you may ask the parish priest (do not guess!). Or, you may select "N/A" (where applicable). However, you should avoid selecting "N/A" frequently as posts which contain excessive "N/A's" may be subject to auto rejection. If you are unsure about the answers, you should hold off until you can answer more thoroughly. Note: See above for link to offline worksheet.

You may submit posts concerning churches you have visited only one time. However, it is preferable to submit posts concerning churches you are more familiar with.

This section is designed for Roman Catholic churches which are ordinarily open to the general Catholic public. 

Churches listed should be regular churches, not chapels. 

We may verify that churches you submit are listed in various resource material(s). If not found, we may reject your post (this may occur even though the church is legitimate).

Stick to the facts and do not use "marketing talk" - e.g. "best ever", "greatest", etc. Instead, phrase your comments as "I liked it best", or "I thought it was the greatest", etc. Be sure to express opinions only where permitted.

This section is designed to assist Catholics, and is not intended for "free advertising". Posts are in summary form and do not include all details a potential parishioner/visitor might be interested in. Do not attempt to include more information than what is requested. For example, if you include a web address or Mass times, your post may be automatically rejected. Please carefully follow all posting guidelines. If you do not follow the guidelines, your post may be automatically rejected. [Note: Catholic churches may be listed at no charge in the MCS Directory. For more information, click here.] 

With very few exceptions, please do not submit churches which have no kneelers or ones that are otherwise barren / protestantized.

Limit one submission per person, per 'favorite church'. Also, do not submit more than one post per month in this section. We may further limit participation on an individual or group basis at our sole option.

Roman Catholic churches of the Latin rite only, please.

Note that we may verify / update your post (or portions thereof).

We may give preference to traditional-minded churches.

No churches which advocate religious indifferentism (i.e. dangerous errors such as "all religions are equally good" or "all good people go to heaven") or which promote scandalous interfaith activities. No churches which promote or give approval to non-Catholic religions.

We may prohibit listings for certain churches or for all churches in certain dioceses or regions at our sole discretion. We may prohibit any listing(s) at our sole discretion.

Long processing delays in this section are not unexpected. Do not contact us regarding your submission and do not resubmit. 

If your church was previously listed and is no longer listed, do not re-submit it. Posts appearing in this section may be limited to a certain duration. For timetable information, click here. If you wish your listing to continue appearing, consider our low-cost commercial sections which may display listings for a month/a year, etc.

Please note that we may place a limit to the number of churches contained in this section. Should this occur, new posts may not appear on the site or may appear at a later time.

Sorry, we cannot guarantee that any particular submission will appear on the site. If your post does not appear, do not resubmit. If it does appear on the site, there is no guarantee when it will appear, how long it will last, what details will be displayed, etc. We may reject posts for any reason, or even for no reason. We may be highly selective about posts in this section (thus, even suitable posts may not appear). [Note: Catholic churches may be listed at no charge in the MCS Directory.

Do not include names, locations, or other identifying information. Do not discuss individuals' sins or other information that should be kept private. 

No seeking validation for sins or for silence in the face of sin (remember that silence and consent to/defense of another's sins are ways of being an accessory to sin).

Submit truthful information only. If in doubt, do not submit.

No quoting Scripture out of context.

While this section is not designed for non-Catholics to post, remember that they may read your post. Therefore, be a good example of the Catholic Faith. Treat all individuals with patience and charity.

No judging another's motives. 

Unless a person is canonized or the information is somehow supernaturally revealed, we do not know whether a deceased person is in Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory. Therefore, no pronouncements on someone's ultimate salvation. When facing someone involved in grievous sins, it is most safe to warn of the seriousness of the situation, based on God's revelation, and not to personally condemn an individual to Hell. Remember that judgment is God's alone.

No religious indifferentism (i.e. dangerous errors such as "all religions are equally good" or "all good people go to heaven").

Each post on this site is independent. Do not refer to previous submissions (yours or others) with your post.

Do not phrase your post as a question.

Limit one post per person, per topic.

Please do not submit items already listed or similar to those already submitted. 

Do not submit untruthful posts or third party posts.

No discussion of unapproved apparitions or private revelations.

No politically motivated submissions.

This section is for matters dealing with coming home to the Church, not for family related matters. Please do not submit 'coming home to the family' type stories here. 

Do not post prodigal son return stories here. Instead, post these stories in the Good News section.

Do not post news of conversion here. Instead, post these stories in the Good News section.

No despairing posts, please. Keep in mind the words of the angel in Luke 1:37: "for nothing will be impossible for God" and also persevere in your prayers and other good efforts. Note: To request prayers, click here.

Sorry, we cannot guarantee that any particular submission will appear on the site. If your post does not appear, do not resubmit.

Latin Mass & Catholic Tradition Section

Limited to (practicing) Roman Catholics only.

Notice: We especially ask you to make a particular effort in this section to present all remarks in a clear and charitable fashion. We recognize that traditionalists are - and rightly so - very passionate about various issues, but we ask you to watch the wording of posts so that they may not tend to turn off others due to excessive harshness or hostility. It might be helpful to re-read posts one or more times before submitting them. Our goal here is to set a good example to those who are not yet traditional Catholics as we attempt to educate them about the venerable traditions of the Church. We therefore respectfully 'beseech you, that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called. With all humility, and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity' (Eph. 4:1-2). Please share your knowledge through good example so that others may be 'won over' to traditionalism by your virtuous behavior (see 1 Pet. 3). 

Submit posts in full communion with the perennial Magisterium only. No posts which don't follow traditional Church teachings (e.g. "modernist" or "progressive" teachings) or which seek to change traditional teachings.

DO NOT NAME ANY business, organization, individual, product, service, website, event, author, book, Catholic material, etc. or provide their contact information in your post. Posts containing such references may be subject to auto rejection. 

No pope or clergy bashing.

Submit posts in English only. You may include small phrases in Latin providing: (1) They are contained in the traditional Latin Mass, and (2) You provide the full & specific reference for the passage (e.g. "First Sentence of Introit for Mass of Tuesday in Holy Week"), and (3) You provide the proper English translation, and (4) You omit all symbols. Despite this provision, we highly discourage posts in Latin as we do not have the personnel to permit Latin language posting. If you do include any Latin with your post, you should be sure that it is absolutely essential to your post - even if just a single word in Latin. Note that posts containing Latin may experience delays in processing and may be subject to auto rejection even if they are suitable posts. Therefore, please do not include any Latin in your post. We regret this inconvenience and hope this site may be more accommodating towards Latin posts in the future. Note: If you have excellent Latin skills and would be interested in volunteering your services for this site, please contact us and provide us with information on your Latin skills, your availability, and your contact information.

NO POSTS ENDORSING "ILLICIT" OR SCHISMATIC ACTIVITIES (as defined by the Holy See).

No Sedevacantist posts.

Please use kindness when talking about the Novus Ordo. We want to be a good example of Traditionalism and not turn off individuals who visit this section due to excessive complaints, finger pointing, condemnations, etc. Remember that many individuals are not even aware of the Traditional Mass and all that Catholic Tradition has to offer them. Rather than insult "Novus Ordo" Catholics for things which they may have had no control over, we must try to assist them charitably towards Traditionalism. 

Please keep in mind this saintly advice: 

"We should remember that [Jesus Christ] himself said that by gentleness we inherit the earth. If we act on this we will win people over so that they will turn to the Lord. That will not happen if we treat people harshly or sharply." (St. Vincent de Paul) 

"Jesus is also gentle in his words. When he dwelt on earth he won everyone over by his gentle speech. Never was he heard to raise his voice or argue heatedly." (St. Louis de Montfort)

Treat all individuals and the Church with great respect and civility and make your points with reasoned, rather than emotional arguments. For example, rather than rattle off negative adjectives to describe a new liturgical practice, make your point by stating why a traditional practice is superior (using Scripture, history, papal documents, writings of the saints, etc.). You may also want to show the fruits of traditional practices and their historical framework.

Please be willing to give others the benefit of the doubt and do not make judgments regarding others' motives. Employ humility, avoid undue harshness, and present all posts as good examples of Catholic traditionalism. 

No discussion of unapproved apparitions or private revelations.

Stick to the facts. Be sure all elements of your post are truthful and are not taken out of context. If in doubt, do not post. If expressing an opinion, indicate that it is an opinion.

Each post on this site is independent. Do not refer to previous submissions (yours or others) with your post.

Note: The term "Latin Mass" used in this section refers to the Traditional Latin Mass, not the new Mass said in Latin.

To keep this section informative, posts should have a definite point and not be structured in the form of a question (except Q & A posts). Note that Q & A posts must include an answer. To submit a question alone for consideration on this site, click here. Also, for answers to questions, consult a good priest, an appropriate, traditional catechism, or other suitable resource. (Note: If desired, you may also consider privately contacting responsible individuals who have included their e-mail address. If so, use caution)

Do not include names, locations, or other identifying information or include details that should be kept private (i.e. information regarding sins, personal matters, etc.).

No name calling or political posts.

No "end times" posts. 

Posts should not contain gossip, derogatory comments, despair, inappropriate/explicit statements, abusive remarks, emotional rambling, judgments regarding others' motives, or "ranting and raving" type dialogue.

This section is intended for the sharing of information, assistance, insights, etc. Therefore, please avoid unproductive complaining, worrying, despairing, etc. Remember that "nothing shall be impossible for God" (Luke 1:37). Please note that positively-phrased posts are preferred.

Limit one post per person, per topic.

Please do not submit posts already listed or similar to those already submitted. 

Do not submit untruthful or unverified information.

Do not submit copyright protected material. 

Notable Catholic Laity Section (Influential Catholics)

"Add Post" option is for Roman Catholics only.

Individuals should be influential in matters of faith (not other matters).

Individuals must have a positive influence.

List Roman Catholic laity in full communion with the Holy See only. Do not include those who don't follow Church teachings, who don't practice their faith, or who seek to have Church teachings changed. 

Individuals are not influential because of their position alone, but because of how they live out the faith.

All individuals listed do not need to be "most" influential. It is sufficient if you are influenced by this person enough to make a positive change in your life (i.e. to live better according to Catholic and Gospel principles).

Sometimes a Catholic will do something small that has a large influence on us and helps us live our faith better. These types of stories are quite appropriate for this section.

It is possible to be influenced by fellow Catholics whom we have never met personally (i.e. correspond via e-mail, see at Mass, read about in a Catholic publication, etc.). Therefore, it is not necessary to know the name of an influential individual (providing there is no doubt as to their Catholicity).

Discuss how this person affects you, not someone else in your submission.

Influential individuals should help you to faithfully live out the Catholic faith according to the Gospel principles, and are not necessarily those who make you "feel good".

If the influential individual is a priest, do not post here. Instead, please consider posting in the Priests & Vocations section (the "Notable Catholic Laity" section is designed for laity, not clergy).

Do not include names (you may use initials), or identifying information, or personal information that should be kept private (i.e. specific sins, etc.).

No judgments regarding others' motives.

Please stick to the facts.

No unsuitable topics (e.g. divorce, unchastisty, or anything against Church teachings).

You may submit posts regarding living or deceased persons.

The goal of this section is to let others learn from your experiences; it is not designed for public thank you's addressed to specific persons. If you wish to direct a personal message to an influential individual, please consider a classified ad or a sponsorship.

This section is not for fables or embellished stories. This section is for factual accounts only ("story" does not mean "fable"). Submit true accounts only.

Limit one submission per "influential individual", per person. 

Please do not submit posts already listed or similar to those already submitted. 

Do not submit copyright protected material. 

Do not third party posts. 

Notable Catholic Laity Section (Well-Known Catholics)

"Add Post" option is for Roman Catholics only.

Submit Roman Catholic laity in full communion with the Holy See only. 

Do not submit individuals already listed! Click here to view all listings. If you submit individuals who are already listed, your post - and all your future posts - may be rejected. Please follow all guidelines. 

Posts highlighting faith-related accomplishments are preferred. For example, a listing for a Catholic founder of a charitable organization is preferable to one highlighting purely secular achievements (i.e. secular acting, secular singing, etc.).

Be sure to spell names correctly and to provide full names (unless known by another name).

Be certain that the individual you are submitting is Catholic. If you are uncertain, do not post!

Processing delays are not unexpected in this section. Do not contact us regarding your submission and do not resubmit.

Do not submit names of canonized saints here (exceptions may be made in cases of certain notorious achievements). Instead, see the Saints section.

While we are all sinners and are not to judge one another, "Some people's sins are public, preceding them to judgment" (1 Tim. 5:24). Since our purpose here is to show positive Catholic contributions, do not submit names of individuals who are notorious for not living out their Catholic faith (i.e. those who are clearly Catholic "in name only" or those who openly defy or reject Church teachings), or those who attempt to subvert or change the Church's teachings, or those who publicly engage in particularly notorious sins or particularly offensive public behaviors. If you disregard these instructions, your post - and all your future posts - may be rejected. 

Names submitted should be familiar to the general public. Lesser known individuals may be included if the accomplishment is important / significant.

You may submit names of living or deceased persons.

Do not submit politicians' names.

You may submit names of converts if conversion information is put in brackets (see instructions provided).

Users are responsible for learning of and following all legal requirements, insurance/safety regulations, etc. related to any correspondence, offers to volunteer, volunteering activities, etc. Remember that we do not provide legal or tax advice. Note: Be sure you do not engage in any unlawful discrimination.

Do not attempt to leave fields blank, answer questions improperly, or include other information besides what is asked for. If you don't follow all instructions, your post - and all your future posts - may be automatically rejected.

Posts are in summary form and do not include all applicable items of interest. Do not attempt to include more information than is permitted. For example, if you include a web address or a name, your post may be automatically rejected. Note that if you do not follow all guidelines in this section, your post - and all your future posts to this site - may be automatically rejected. Please follow all instructions carefully.

We recommend that you include a "final date" to notify users not to contact you after that date. Unfortunately, however, there is no guarantee that you will not be contacted after that time. Note that posts may appear on the site for a long time and that we cannot honor requests to remove volunteer offers which are no longer applicable. Click here for general timetable information.

Submit posts in English only.

This section is limited to those wishing to volunteer in the U.S.A. only.

Please note that we may place a limit on the number of posts in this section. Should this occur, new posts may not appear on the site or may appear at a later time.

For widest variety in this section, we may limit some listings at our sole option. For example, if 50 individuals submit offers to volunteer for rosary making, we may limit the number which appear on the site to just a few.

You may offer to volunteer for a variety of activities in a single post if they are of the same type (e.g. e-mail, phone, etc.). For example, if you want to volunteer to give sewing or gardening advice via e-mail, you should submit only one post and indicate that you are willing to give advice on either matter. Do not submit multiple posts! 

If we have questions about your submission, your post may be rejected.

Offers to volunteer for Catholic activities may receive preference. Additional preference may be given to traditional Catholic activities.

Note that an e-mail address will be required in order to contact you regarding your availability, terms, etc. Please note that, for your protection, we recommend a cautious approach to providing e-mail information and we generally recommend that you obtain a special e-mail account for use on this site. For additional considerations regarding the risks of providing e-mail addresses, click here. Note that if you do not wish to include your e-mail address, you will be unable to participate in this section. Please note that we may verify e-mail addresses provided and require a certain timely response. (Reminder: Our verification will not ask for personal information.)

Reminder: Volunteering involves risk and you should be sure to carefully consider all aspects of volunteering before participating in any contact / volunteer activity, etc. Note that we are not a party to your volunteering and we do not mediate disputes. All participation (including contacts/correspondence, etc.) is at your own risk. Click here for more important considerations regarding volunteering.

If you submit untruthful/inaccurate information here, or if you submit a post containing inappropriate content, that post - and all your future posts to this site - may be subject to auto rejection.

Long processing delays in this section are not unexpected. Do not contact us regarding the status of your submission and do not resubmit. 

Sorry, we cannot guarantee that any particular submission will appear on the site. If your post does not appear, do not resubmit. If it does appear on the site, there is no guarantee when it will appear, how long it will last, what details will be displayed, etc. We may reject posts for any reason, or even for no reason. Due to space or other considerations, we may be selective about posts (thus, even suitable posts may not appear). 

If your post was previously listed but is no longer listed, do not re-submit it. Posts appearing in this section may be limited to a short duration. For timetable information, click here. If you wish your post to appear for a longer duration than what is standard for this section, consider our low-cost commercial sections which may display listings for a month/a year, etc.

You may not pay to include your post here. Paid advertisements are available in various commercial sections of this site. To advertise in the Classifieds section, click here. To advertise in other paid sections, click here. For additional information regarding commercial advertisements, click here.

Note that we do not endorse / recommend any individual(s) / organization(s) / group(s), etc. who may contact you regarding your post.

We may prohibit posts from certain regions at our sole discretion. We may limit non-Catholic participation. We may prohibit any post(s) at our sole discretion.

Reminder: You should be careful not to reveal personal information unintentionally in your post(s) and other correspondence. Note that some options may disclose various types of information (i.e. your availability, your previous experience, your religious affiliation, etc.). Proceed at your own risk. Remember that any participation [including submitting a post(s)] is at your own risk. If you do not want to take such risks (or cannot afford to), you should not participate.

Why I Love Being Catholic

"Add Post" option is for Roman Catholics only.

This section is for serious, meaningful posts. Irreverent, superficial ("I like being Catholic because Fr. Bob gives a funny homily", etc.), or otherwise inappropriate posts may be subject to automatic rejection. 

This section is an antithesis to the popular Catholic-bashing in the media. We obviously love the Catholic Church due to Her divine origination and life-giving power, but there are also many other subtle gifts and blessings - and not-so-subtle gifts & blessings - given by the Church (i.e. good examples, guidance, spiritual tools, doctrines, sacramentals, etc.). This section is designed primarily to discuss these types of gifts and blessings.

Submit only items in full communion with the Holy See.  

This section is not for good news about the Catholic Church. To add a post regarding good news about the Catholic Church, click here.

Limit one submission per person, per item. 

Please do not submit items already listed or similar to those already submitted. 

Do not submit copyright protected material. 

+ Notes: Above excludes commercial areas. Items above relate to "Add" pages for user posts. Items herein are not comprehensive. See "Add Post" pages for more detailed instructions regarding submissions. Note that guidelines indicated above in certain section(s) may also apply to other section(s). Also note that the fact that the absence of any particular guideline(s) in section(s) above does not necessarily mean it doesn't apply (for example, some items above may indicate "do not submit copyright protected material", while others do not indicate this - however this guideline applies to all sections). Finally, note that all terms, conditions, guidelines, instructions, etc. are subject to change at any time without notice.


We make no guarantees regarding any item herein. By using this site you indicate agreement to all terms. For terms information, see "Important Notice" above and click here.
