What else does Cultural Catholic mean?

  • A person who is able to identify with some Catholic teachings or traditions but not actively in the Catholic Church. The “cultural Catholic” is someone who was brought up in Catholic families and attended Catholic school at least for a few years. While Catholic traditions and teachings may have an influence on the individual’s decision-making and behavior, a “cultural Catholic”, however, does not attend Mass and practice his faith. A person can continue attending weddings and funerals that are held in the Catholic Church, but this is not to express his or her faith. (in Community Dictionary, added by Abdullah Blankenship)
