The Prayer That Saved the Early Church

Most Catholic parishes pray the Nicene Creed (some pray the Apostles’ Creed) at each Sunday Mass. This statement of faith, written in the 4th century, affirms the central mystery of the Church—the Holy Trinity. When the Creed was written, the heresy of Arianism—which included the false belief that Jesus was a man, not divine—threatened the unity of the Church. This Catholic Resource sheet provides background on the Nicene Creed that you can share with your class. Then pray this statement of our faith together.
