The Catholic definition of devotion is a gift of oneself or one's activities to God. These devotional ministries exist to support our willingness and desire, as Catholics, to dedicate ourselves to serve God through prayers or pious acts such as the adoration of God or the veneration of the saints or the Virgin Mary.

Catholic devotions are not part of the official liturgy of the Catholic Church but are part of the popular spiritual practices of Catholics. Devotions can range in form from formalized, multi-day prayers such as Novenas to Eucharistic adoration, from Stations of the Cross to the Rosary, and even horticultural practices such as maintaining a Mary Garden.
