Welcome to TradCircle! This is a social networking site for people of all ages all over the world to meet each other and make friends who share the same traditional Catholic faith.  TradCircle was conceived of and founded by clergy in 2008 and is currently moderated by a team of laypeople in consultation with and under obedience to that clergy.  

TradCircle is dedicated to the Blessed Trinity and claims Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity as patroness of this site and its members. The Circle is the symbol of the Trinity, Almighty God who is one yet three, whose Three Divine Persons are never alone. They are "the three holiest persons in Heaven," as St. John of the Cross said. The purpose of this website is to encourage isolated Catholics not to be alone, but to associate virtually with other Catholics as well as to help them persevere and grow in the faith, the love of God, and eventually the easier to reach Heaven.  It has also helped some people to meet, court, and get married, though that is not the only purpose of this site.

While there are other Traditional Catholic social networks out there, we are the only one that requires a profile picture of yourself, a real first and last name, and a filled-out profile to ensure that those on here are actually interested in being part of a community, not in just "browsing."  We look forward to getting to know you!  Every few months we periodically go through our rolls to make sure that our members are actually active and participating. 

To be clear - Members are expected to be active within a moving 30-day window.  Activity is defined as posting pictures, posting in forums, etc.  Inactive members may be suspended, without warning, with reinstatement possible should they express a wish to be more active on this site.  Profiles may be provisionally approved but will be expected to confirm to all standards within 24 hours.  Membership here is not a right, but a privilege.

Our norms and expectations for modesty and photos on this site are outlined here.

Finally, while we think of ourselves simply as "Catholics" who are observing the moral and liturgical norms as they were set down prior to Vatican II, this website assumes the reality of sedevacantism: a conclusion that since Vatican II and the New "Mass" are harmful to the Catholic faith: they cannot proceed from the Catholic Church and hence cannot be accepted.  While we accept that some people who are on this forum may be on a journey towards sedevacantism, we will not engage in debates as to whether sedevacantism is an acceptable solution to the crisis.  This website accepts that reality and welcomes anyone of good will who is searching for answers.

Please pray three Hail Marys each day for the success of this site and the perseverance of all Catholics in this time of chastisement and betrayal.


Daily Sacred Scripture

It is amazing that I have not yet seen a discussion like this started. Even Facebook has this one. Anyhow, if someone wants to join, all one has to do is add a piece of Sacred Scripture each day. Whether it is your favorite or enlightening, just add a Scripture for the Lord's sake. First one: "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18).

Pray for a Pope

I received this in an email and wanted to pass it on here:   This site/cause has been my idea for a while now, namely, to begin the novel concept of round the clock prayer for the restoration of the papacy.It was also fueled by the idea that already much is being done in the way of education regarding the evils of the latest papal claimants - but not many P R A Y for a solution. Not hard, anyway.There are dozens of causes that we devote our prayers to, but this somehow is neglected, yet most…

Daring to Date

This may seem like a strange subject for discussion, but after several years' active membership on this site following multiple "dating" and "courtship" and "getting to know people" threads, I'm still not seeing much improvement in how people actually go about finding a spouse. I hear the same complaints (and I'm not exempt from making them, either) but no good strategies. Therefore, as a single woman with several siblings, numerous friends (especially single females), and wide acquaintance…

Elementary School Ok's After School Satan Club

Praised be Jesus and Mary! Did anyone else hear about this? This will supposedly allow them to reach students as young as five. How anyone in their right mind could think this belongs in school is beyond me. There are plans to open clubs at 9 more schools =( May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless and protect us and the Immaculate Heart of Mary keep us! St. Michael, defend us in battle!

The Trad Circle Lonely Hearts Club Fraternity

Dear all, From talking to people on our chat group, it has become clear that many of us are pathetic lonely husks of human beings who long ago abandoned all hope of finding love and have retreated into a bitter shell of defensiveness, eye-twitching and muttering unshaven, insomniac nonsense at bus stops.  And I think I speak for all of us when I say that. Or perhaps just myself. XD Either way, I think it would be good for all those on this forum who are yet to find their true love to join with…
