What site activities can I participate in?

CatholicMatch offers a number of activities, including the forums, Catholic trivia, Events, chat rooms, daily readings, and the CatholicMatch Institute Blog.

The Forums are a great place to engage in discussion on any number of topics from single life, sports, theology and more. All members can read the forums, however, an active subscription is required to post replies and begin new topics.

CatholicMatch Trivia allows you to test your Catholic knowledge, brush up on certain topics and see if you can make it onto the top score leaderboard. This feature is available to all members who have chosen to include a profile photo in their profile.

Events are hosted by fellow CatholicMatch members and can be anything from Mass and a meal to a full international vacation with fellow Catholics. Many members have found their matches by attending a CatholicMatch event, in addition to many lifelong faith-based friendships with fellow Catholics. An active subscription is not required to take part in CatholicMatch events.

The Chat Rooms are a place to engage in fast-paced conversation about any number of topics. Any subscribing member who has included a profile photo in their profile may participate in the chat rooms.

Chat Rooms: If a member is being offensive in the chat rooms, what should I do?

The Chat Rooms are meant to be self-policing. To report a member:

  • Select the member's name or profile photo from the chat room roster.
  • Select "Report User" from the list of options
  • A report will automatically be sent to customer support noting the time and place where the conduct had occurred.

Reports of activity in the chat rooms are reviewed during business hours. After a number of reports against the same person he or she will be automatically kicked out of the chat room, however, if they have not yet reached this limit you can block the member's messages from appearing on your screen.

Temperaments: What are Temperaments?

The four temperaments were originally proposed by Hippocrates (the father of medical science) 350 years before the birth of Christ, to explain differences in personalities, based on the predominant bodily fluid; hence the rather unappealing names: choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic, and melancholic. Even today these same terms are used to describe temperament, by which we mean an individuals tendency to react in a certain way throughout their life, forming an identifiable pattern.

  • Cholerics tend to react quickly and intensely, and to take action immediately and decisively.
  • The sanguine is your classic people person, known for their warmth, enthusiasm, and cheerful optimism.
  • The melancholic is deeply thoughtful and analytic, slow to respond, skeptical, sensitive, and idealistic.
  • The phlegmatic is usually a peace-maker, slow to react, calm, cooperative, and reserved.

Events: What can I do if there are no events near my area?

Since all CatholicMatch events are hosted by CatholicMatch members, the best way to have an event in your area is to host one yourself. If you do not feel driven to do so, posting in the Member Meet-Ups forum is a great place to find others in your area who may be willing to do the legwork to put one together.
