Welcome to the faith community of St. Raymond of Pena fort in Mount Prospect Illinois. We are a Catholic parish founded in the true spirit of Vatican II reforms. As a Christian community center we pledge in a place where all are invited and will be accepted at any place of pilgrimage of faith. We hope that in the many pages of our site the education and information of its growing relationship with Christ is clear. We believe that creation is good and that God uses the building to be used for their purposes. It has been affected by the original sin which is the result of the sin of the first humans. Catholic theologians (and Orthodox) have never agreed on a particular interpretation of the creation story in Genesis. A small number of early Christians read literally allegorically and others in the light of science of the day. Some people read all three channels simultaneously. Catholics should not interpret Genesis in a literal sense as the interpretation is faithful to the teachings of the Church. Catholics are free to understand the true meaning of Genesis the ‘Word’ but also to read the book of Genesis in the light of modern scientific observations until certain conditions are met. For example: Catholics believe that God created the world out of nothing (ex nihilo) creating the world by his Word who became man in Jesus Christ. The interpretation of Genesis in the light of the clash of scientific observations Christians whose churches have been in discussions of modernity 19 and 20 century founded. Surprisingly there is a very literal understanding that Genesis is actually a very modern approach. We believe the Nicene Creed which is why we believe in one God composed of three persons (person in this usage individual reality) and not man. Basically Catholics believe in the Father Son and Holy Spirit are all God. One in the art but it is clear that in some respects that are not shared. In addition to an intellectual understanding of Trinidad we developed a relationship with the triune God through prayer and worship. The Trinity is not tritheism (belief in three Gods) but a dynamic monotheism
