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.

Acceptable Films for Catholic Viewing

We were discussing various standards of judging films on another discussion and it was mentioned that it would be easier to post a list of "good" films rather than trying to rate all the bad ones out there. The criteria given for the following list use a combination, so to speak, of rules Bishop Sanborn has given in various sermons and the old Legion of Decency rating system. If you want to suggest other films in this thread, rate them according to the following. If in doubt, specify what is…

Fátima: Things You Might Know or Not

  1. Fátima words that technically aren’t Some quotes associated with the apparitions were not said in Fátima. Most popular among them are: “The sins which cause most souls to go to hell are the sins of the flesh.” “Fashions will much offend our Lord. People who serve God should not follow the fashions." Our Lady said these words in Lisbon, not Fátima. Jacinta spent her last days in Lisbon where she died of the Spanish Flu. That was where she received these revelations.   2. The Seventh…

Inspiring Religious Vocations

   What do you think would help today's traditional Catholics consider more-genuinly a vocation to religious life? One can see that a great number of religious vocations are either lost or rejected when one considers the ratio of religious-to-laity. It is estimated that 1 in every 5 boys has a religious vocation; it is the same if not more-so for religious vocations in girls. Where are they? “Who will stand before the altar, who will preach the Word of God? Who will assist the priests and who…

Keeping Things Lively

Several months ago, it seemed like all the single guys and gals on here (and many of the marrieds, too) were posting away at the "3 Things in a Spouse" thread, and it was a lot of fun.  However, since all of us were posting "strong Catholic" as #1, with a few other specifically faith-related topics as 2 and 3, we started to run out of more elaborative options. Now I want to go beyond that and get some opinions on METHODS of meeting traditional Catholic potential spouses. Pre-requisites…

First Mass - Advice Please

Hello all! I'll be attending my first traditional Mass next Sunday and I'm feeling more than a little nervous. Do you have any suggestions or tips to help it go smoothly? (Technically, I've been to a Requiem Mass at my NO parish but I was singing with a small group in the choir loft and very focused on not messing up the music so, I didn't experience much of the Mass itself.) Even if you don't have any tips, prayers would be greatly appreciated (not only for this Mass but, as I navigate this…
