About Us

www.matchcatholics.com website is an initiative of Pilar Ministries based at Pilar Animation Centre. It is a Catholic Matrimonial website for the benefit of Catholic Singles all over the world looking for a right life partner. This website functions under Match Catholics Ministry. It is a ministry to build faith based families. The need of the hour is to build a faith community among lay people, encouraging adult single men and women to marry among the faithful and creating opportunities for families rooted in faith to flourish. The idea behind building a social networking site came about as a response to this need of the hour. You can be a member in this endeavour by registering through this website. If you reside in Goa, you could also take the benefit of taking part in the Match Catholics Meet held at Pilar Animation Centre, Pilar, Goa. The meet is a venue for like minded Catholic single men and women to gather and interact, in the hope of making new friends, creating a social network and finding the right person to marry.

At Match Catholics, we respect your privacy. Your personal details, contact information and photographs will be visible only to those you want to show them to.  You will have full control over visibility settings, enabling you to make your contact information available only to select people. Try to give a clear description of yourself and what you look for in your spouse. Be honest in what you write. A good description will always elicit responses. Make sure your description is clear and has all the required details.
