Last edited 17th November 2014

It is erroneous to believe, however, that all single Catholics are no different in their values and practices than any other single American. There are numerous singles who practice their faith, assent to the Church’s doctrines and moral teachings, and who do their best to live a life worthy enough of a Catholic Christian.
