Society of Saint Pius X[edit]

This article about the radical schism needs some serious neutralizing, if anyone is interested.--Monochrome_Monitor 23:08, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Greetings Monochrome Monitor – Today I added at the article's talk page, the Catholicism WP article assessment criteria. Uncertain if this will help draw additional editors to the article. Regards, JoeHebda • (talk) 15:31, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
@Monochrome Monitor: could you start a discussion at Talk:Society of Saint Pius X which points out your concerns. –BoBoMisiu (talk) 11:55, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
I really intended to be more of a messenger to those more knowledgeable about/ with more investment in this area. But I'll start one soon. :)--Monochrome_Monitor 18:53, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Edits for review[edit]

Could an experienced editor review these edits by Hymnodist.2004? They've been adding that certain months traditionally represent a certain item (Jesus, etc) in the Catholic church. I would think that if these entries were truly notable, they would've been added by now. Also, some of this user's other edits are interesting. Thanks. Graham87 09:21, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Featured Article Proposal Comments: St. Peter's Basilica[edit]

I have nominated St. Peter's Basilica for Featured article status. Its entry is listed at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/St. Peter's Basilica/archive1, where you can leave your comments. All comments are appreciated and the more there are, the more quickly it can be promoted or the nomination closed. Ergo Sum 22:01, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Catholic Bishop articles being discussed.[edit]

hi, a number of Catholic bishop articles are being discussed at Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion, thought you might like a heads up. Coolabahapple (talk) 16:41, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Help cleanup Catholic laity[edit]

This article is in pretty bad need of cleanup. Right much is poorly written and entire sections look to be copy paste from the 1983 CIC. I'm working on it piecemeal, but any help would be appreciated. TonyBallioni (talk) 22:44, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Modernism in the Catholic Church[edit]

I landed there while doing some research and just wanted to drop a quick FYI. The article, which deals with a subject I'd think was of at least moderate importance to this project, has some problems. I've tagged the article and left a short note on the talk page if anyone is interested. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:18, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Changing name from "Catholicism" to "Catholic Church"?[edit]

What about changing the nane of this portal to "Catholic Church" instead of "Catholicism", as per the discussion here: Chicbyaccident (talk) 16:40, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

There is also an equivalent discussion at Talk:Roman Catholicism in Armenia. Chicbyaccident (Please notify with {{SUBST:re}} (Talk)

New Cardinals[edit]

Please remember that the Cardinal-Designates named this morning do not become Cardinals until 19 November. While it is appropriate to mention the upcoming event in their bios, they should not be called Cardinals yet.--Dcheney (talk) 15:45, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Just a follow up, there are still 4 of the new Cardinal-Designates without English Wiki articles. There are articles on all 4 in other languages: fr:Maurice Piat, es:Carlos Aguiar Retes, it:John Ribat, and it:Sebastian Koto Khoarai.--Dcheney (talk) 22:46, 13 October 2016 (UTC)


The Ave Regina Caelorum article has two templates: (Roman Catholic Mariology) and (Marian prayers), but I don't see a difference. The second could focus on prayer by eliminating the other sections; (Prayers and devotions could also be eliminated from the first.) Why two identical templates? Mannanan51 (talk) 03:37, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Done. {{Roman Catholic Mariology}} and {{Marian prayers}} are both redirects to the same template, {{Catholic mariology sidebar}}. Cambalachero (talk) 18:14, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
I take it then that you were not interested in a separate template just for prayers. Mannanan51 (talk) 20:44, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Poorly-sourced information being added to diocese articles[edit]

Good day to you, my brothers and sisters. I am currently tracking the addition of material to a large range of United States Catholic (arch)diocese articles. The material consists of "Priests of this diocese who became bishops". I began to remove it as unsourced, as the editor(s) are introducing it bare, without any footnote, citation, source or reference. The editor (currently @ claims that the source is There is substantial agreement on Wikipedia that this is a self-published source and not suitable as a reliable secondary source such as would be needed for biographical information. I have reverted a few articles, and engaged in discussion with the editor, but I came here chiefly because there needs to be a centralized discussion rather than several underwatched article talk pages and user talk pages for IP addresses that are not stable. Elizium23 (talk) 23:14, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Greetings Elizium23 – Throwing in my two cents here. Instead of listing "Priests of diocese who became bishops" within the article itself, I've seen them listed (plain) within the diocese Navbox template, for example Template:Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Rather than a complete removal (for which I see your point) it might be helpful for readers to find them listed in the diocese navbox instead. Regards, JoeHebda • (talk) 12:36, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
This doesn't address my main issue of adequate sourcing. Are you trying to say that you accept Catholic-Hierarchy as a source for this material? Elizium23 (talk) 17:05, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
There have been "on again - off again" discussions of this topic with no ultimate resolution. See recent, and here. Whenever I see Catholic Hierarchy in article references, I tag with {{Self-published source}} template. If additional editors have ideas & opinions on this topic please contribute them here. Thanks. Cheers! JoeHebda • (talk) 21:16, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
I'll add my usual note: I am the creator of the website in question and would be happy to answer any questions regarding it. I take no view about its suitability as a source for Wiki.--Dcheney (talk) 22:39, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
