Website Review: Catholic Match

A review based on: http://www.catholicmatch.com

Description

Formerly known as St. Raphael Catholic Singles Network, this site offers single Catholics the opportunity to meet and converse with others for the purpose of discerning vocations to the married life, religious life, or the often forgotten vocation of being single.

This Catholic singles site attempts to ensure the fidelity to the Faith of those who participate. The profile questions are specific, asking whether or not you agree with the Church's teachings (and the site provides a summary of each teaching) on pre-marital sex, contraception, abortion, papal infallibility, the Holy Eucharist, and other crucial issues.

Other parts of the profile reflect how often one goes to Mass, which rite they attend, and what Catholic devotions they perform, etc. Despite this, the site still allows those who disagree with Church teachings to be members. Unfortunately this leads to people ineligible for marriage (divorced without annulments) attending functions with singles who are seeking to be married. There is also considerable disagreement with Church teachings in the Forum discussions.
