Answer
Hello and thank you for writing. As I reviewed your question and posted links, I am unsure what it is that you are asking. However, in answer too are there different Churches for both, the answer would be yes. Catholics hold their services in a Catholic Church while Protestants have their own places of worship.


As far a similarities and differences, they would be found in the theologies and doctrines of the faiths. In some Protestant Churches (Lutheran, Episcopal etc.) The service is quite similar to that of the Catholic Churches, including the rituals. The difference would be in the Catholics view of Papal Authority and other core doctrines and the Protestant Churches rejection of them.

If you could be more specific in what you are looking for, I would be more than happy to assist you in this. Please don't hesitate to follow up.


Sincerely

Expertise

I am willing to to answer any questions regarding Biblical Doctrine and application. Can a man lose his salvation? Is the Trinitarian Doctrine really Biblical? Was there really Pre-Adamic life? What of the end times,IS there really a raputure? Who will be raptured? Where are we in the end time scenario? Are we predestined ? All these are doctrinal questions.Most would answer based on traditional teachings(not biblical).Find out the TRUTH according to the Bible.
