Q:

Is Peyton Manning Catholic?

A:

Peyton Manning is Protestant rather than a Catholic, and his faith in Christ has been a top priority in his life since he was 13 years old, according to the Christian Post. Manning considers himself blessed, seeks guidance from God and prays every night.

On the football field, Manning is arguably one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. He has been a prolific passer, winning a record five NFL MVP awards, along with the Super Bowl MVP award when he led the Colts to victory in Super Bowl XLI. Before every game, he prays for the safety of all the players on the field.

Though he's had many chances, Manning does not point to heaven after scoring a touchdown. He has no problems with players who do this, but he says he wants his actions to speak louder than his words as he leads a life committed to God.
