Take a step back in time to see some familiar Catholic faces.

It’s hard to find Catholics living their faith in the world of Hollywood. In fact, even if you look to years gone by, you’ll notice there were very few stars who managed to keep their marriages together.

However, there were some actors who openly declared their faith, and even though they struggled to live according to Church teachings, their Catholic faith still influenced their lives, enabling them to do good works for others and support charitable organizations.

So take a walk down memory lane at these familiar faces of old.
