You Might be a Catholic

So I'm totally sort of stealing this idea from my friend Caitlyn who wrote about "You might be a Mormon if..." I also got this idea from Andrew and his family, who are always joking with me about being a Catholic. So here goes!


  • If there's beer at your church festival, you might be Catholic.

  • If you've been drunk in the school cafeteria at your church, you might be Catholic.

  • If your church is more crowded on Easter and Christmas, meaning you have to get to mass almost an hour before it starts, you might be Catholic.

  • If you dressed like a bride for first holy communion, you might be Catholic.

  • If someone's asked you, "How's the pope doing these days" you might be Catholic (Andrew's dad asked me this when we first started dating, love it!)

  • If you've ever gone to CCD or PSR on a Monday/Sunday night, you might be a Catholic. (We called it Catholic Childrens Dungeon)

  • If you find nothing odd about getting an aerobic workout on a Sunday morning (sit, stand, kneel, sit, stand), you might be a Catholic.

  • If people in your family were offended when you didn't ask them to be your Confirmation sponsor, you might be a Catholic.

  • If your wedding was over an hour long, you might be a Catholic.

  • If you're at a gathering and someone says a blessing over the food and you're the only one doing the sign of the cross, you might be a Catholic.

  • If you have at least one rosary, gold cross necklace and Precious Moments bible, you might be a Catholic.

I'm sure I could go on and on for days about this, but I think you get the humor and the point! If you've got any to add, leave me a comment or let me know which one is your favorite!

My favorite was, "If you wedding was over an hour long..."
My aunt had a full-on Catholic wedding when I was 11. I was a "junior bridesmaid" and it was loooooong!

And yes, you are my Catholic friend, ha ha.
