P. 41

Name ________________________________________ One, Holy, Catholic, and ApostolicIn the Nicene Creed, we affirm that the Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. These are the four Marks of the Church. The Church is one because we recognize one God, one faith, and one baptism. The Church is holy because her source is God himself. The Church is catholic, meaning “universal,” because she proclaims a universal faithto all people at all times. Finally, the Church is apostolic because she is built on the ministry of the Twelve Apostles, commissioned by Christ himself.Activity 9Design and draw your own symbol for each Mark of the Church. Make sure each symbol reflects something that the Church believes about its own identity.HolyOneCatholicApostolicCreed© 2018 Pflaum Publishing Group, a division of Bayard, Inc. Dayton, OH.
