Belief Statements – Week One


Watch Father Chris’ HOMILY and reflect on his exhortation on these belief statements:

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church, founded by Christ during His time on earth, fully subsisting today as the Catholic Church.

We believe everything contained in the Word of God, whether written or handed down in Tradition, which the Church, either by a solemn judgement or by the ordinary and universal Magisterium, sets forth to be believed as divinely revealed.

In addition to the homily each weekend, you are invited to a “Belief Statement Q&A with Father Chris” on Mondays from 6:30pm to 7pm. You can join over the phone (call 1-857-232-0158, Enter Code 336656) or via Facebook Live (it will be on the parish’s page which is St. Raymond of Penafort of Philadelphia, PA). You are welcome to submit questions on the Facebook Page, by calling the Parish Office (215-549-3760) and leaving a message with Yoline or by emailing  We want these Q&A sessions to allow you the chance to grow in understanding our beliefs as a Church Family and how these beliefs impact our lives!
