Welcome to the Catholicism WikiProject's Collaboration Effort! This effort seeks to identify Catholic-related articles — including doctrines, saints and popes, dioceses, famous churches, and others — that require improvement. On a regular basis, a single article will be selected as the collaboration, and our generous volunteers will work to improve it as much as possible -- perhaps even to featured article status.

Any nominated article which receives five or more supporting votes within two weeks of nomination will be added to the end of the collaboration queue. At the end of each two-week period, unless the collaboration queue is empty, the next article on the list will be selected.

We also take articles from the public domain Catholic Encyclopedia and convert them to Wikipedia articles. The voting works much the same way but articles remain in the special CCE holding tank until they are ready to be published in Wikipedia.

Any editor, registered or not, can help the collaboration and contribute to the fortnightly article. To get more involved, see the project homepage.

Emblem of the Papacy SE.svg How this works[edit]

We nominate and vote in a similar way to the Article Improvement Drive. You may nominate any Catholic-related article and vote on as many as you please. Opposing votes are not counted. If you need ideas about articles to nominate, feel free to peruse Category:Roman Catholic Church stubs.

Emblem of the Papacy SE.svg How to nominate an article[edit]

Note to contributors: To add a new nomination, please:

(1) Copy the appropriate template below
(2) Paste it at the top of the list of nominations
(3) Replace "ARTICLE NAME" with the exact name of the page you wish to nominate. (Keep the double brackets in place around the name, though!)
(4) Replace "DATE" with today's correct date and "DATE + 14 DAYS" with today's date, plus fourteen days. For both, the year is not necessary.
(5) Sign your user name with the directions in the template and add a comment for why the article should be nominated.
(6) Please preview your addition to make it sure all information is properly filled in and the links are working.

Emblem of the Papacy SE.svg How to vote[edit]

A vote of support for an article shows your commitment to support and aid in collaborating on that specific article if it is chosen. Although you are not required to fulfill that commitment, we ask that you only support articles to which you are able to contribute.

Any interested user is encouraged to vote so long as you abide by the policies of Wikipedia, specifically Wikipedia:Sockpuppets.

Please add only supporting votes. Opposing votes will not affect the result, as articles are added to the queue when they reach five votes (see Approval voting).

To vote for a nomination, edit the nomination and add the following to the bottom of the Support section:

# ~~~~ - (Any comments here.)

This adds your username and a time stamp to the numbered list item. The vote will look like this:

  1. Username 02:53, Thursday, November 26, 2015 (UTC) - (Any comments here.)

If your vote fulfills the italicized requirements (e.g., "Needs x votes by y date"), please add the article to the collaboration queue for two weeks after the last entry, list the supporters, and remove it from the candidates section.

  1. Richard 07:04, 27 January 2007 (UTC) -- I just finished a major of expansion of this stub article and I still have only covered the first millenium of church history. Even that is just a first stab. I can't believe this important part of church history has been neglected all this time. Please come help flesh out this article.

Catholic Encyclopedia collaboration queue[edit]

  1. .

Candidates for adding to the encyclopedia collaboration queue[edit]

  1. Divine Mercy This is appropriate since Divine Mercy Sunday 2011 is two days away and also relevant because J.P. II's beatification is scheduled for this day. This article is a start class and it would be a miracle if we could move it to Good by June. It needs a section on history, recognized miracles attributed to the divine mercy, and the divine mercy Sunday page needs to be merged with Divine Mercy.
