What is 3D Catholic?

3D stands for 3 Devotions. It’s a movement that unites Catholics in the practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Become a 3D Catholic

3D Catholic invites you to join others in your immediate area in practicing 3 Catholic devotions for 30 days.

Each of the devotions is focused on the Incarnation of Jesus Christ and provides the grace to live according to it.

By joining the 3D Catholic movement, you are committing to:

  • Praying the Angelus everyday at noon
  • Abstaining from meat on Fridays
  • Performing at least one corporal work of mercy each week

How it Works

Commit for 30 days

The problem many people have with devotions is that they get too busy or simply forget to practice them. 3D Catholic provides helpful reminders and connects you to other Catholics who are practicing the 3 Devotions along with you.

30 days of practice means you will be well on your way to forming a habit - and a life giving one at that!

The Angelus

Daily reminders to pray the Angelus with the rest of the Church

“An angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary…”

The Angelus prayer commemorates the Incarnation of Jesus in Mary’s womb.

Meatless Fridays

Reminders for abstaining from meat on Fridays so that you’re prepared to align your will with His love as you move through your day.

The Church calls us to abstain from something every Friday of the year in order to commemorate Our Lord’s Passion which took place on a Friday - so why not meat?

Works of Mercy

Offering valuable suggestions and connecting you to others in your community who are serving those in need.

Our faith consists in loving our God with our whole heart, mind and soul and loving our neighbor as ourselves. Performing corporal works of mercy like feeding the hungry or taking care of the sick can be a challenge when study and social schedules take over.

Use the app’s calendar to find opportunities to serve in your community. But don’t forget the opportunities right in front of you. Helping a sick friend, attending a relative’s funeral or giving money to the homeless are all corporal works of mercy.

Prayer Intention Stream

See what others are praying about in your community.

Offer up their intentions when you are praying the Angelus, abstaining from meat or performing a corporal work of mercy. Up vote prayers that seem especially urgent. Down vote anything inappropriate.
