Finding a perfect match can feel like a daunting task. That's why more and more singles are turning to online dating and matchmaking sites to try to find their soulmate. Catholic Match was created in 1999, by Jason LaFossee and Brian Barcaro, two people who recognized the need for an online community where Catholics could come together with the intention of finding their future spouse. Originally named Saint Raphael, after the patron saint of singles, happy meetings and hearings, the name changed to Catholic Match in 2004. Catholic Match caters exclusively to Catholic singles who are interested in dating and ultimately marriage. The company's goal is to provide single members of the Catholic faith opportunities to meet other, like-minded Catholic singles whom they would not otherwise encounter. Anyone interested in using Catholic Match can create a profile and browse the profiles of other users absolutely free. Once a community member is ready to begin connecting with other members, he or she can choose from one of Catholic Match's three affordable subscription packages. Catholic Match is so confident in their ability to help their members find a match, that they offer a guarantee. Any member who puts in an "honest effort" for the first six months of their subscription, will receive another six months absolutely free.
