"Beware - Most Catholic Dating Agencies are not Catholic!" A word of caution: there are at least a dozen commercial Catholic singles dating agencies, but beware, most are not Catholic! The majority are simply large commercial agencies seeking to exploit a niche market. They try to pass themselves off as Catholic dating service, but upon signing up you will quickly discover that not only are they not Catholic, they are not even Christian. The Catholic Unattached Directory prides itself on being a 100% Catholic dating service. They hold that if it is not run on Catholic principles it would lack integrity and we would be doing a disservice to our members.
Catholic Singles is a tried and tested organisation which helps single adult Catholics of all ages meet, either one to one or through social events. It's another way to meet people who share the Faith and want to meet other like-minded people.
