Catholics on Instagram That You Should Follow

Instagram is still one of the hottest growing social media platforms out there – and also the number one source for selfies, cat photos, and food pics (I am definitely guilt of the latter on my Instagram page).

UPDATED MAY 2021

With over a billion active users, it’s sometimes hard to sort through the noise to find people worth following. That’s especially true when it comes to Catholics on Instagram. With that mind, we sorted through hundreds of suggestions from readers and came up with our short list of “Catholics on Instagram That You Should Follow” (we’re working on a more complete list of Catholics on Instagram – this page just has the cream of the crop).

We factored in six major criteria in this decision:

  1. Type of Content: Are they posting content that is evangelistic in nature or just photos of their dinner?
  2. Beauty: Are their images beautiful?
  3. Followers: How many followers do they have?
  4. Engagement: Are people actively engaging with their content?
  5. Frequency: Are they posting regularly?
  6. Originality: Are they posting the same content as everyone else or creating things that are unique?

Here are Our Picks for the Top Catholics on Instagram That You Should Follow…
