In 1992, Bank Muamalat Indonesia suited a pioneer of Islamic banks in the world's most populous Muslim country. The prohibition of usury is not only in the Islamic Law because there are also in other religions. The number of non-Muslim customers in Islamic banks is still around one percent until 2019. This study aims to examine the attitudes and behavior of bank customers in accordance with Catholic Law related to the prohibition of usury. The quantitative method through a questionnaire was applied to 60 Catholic respondents in Surabaya. The study found that there are pros and cons about usury among Catholics. Interest-based banks are recognized to be able to increase welfare, but it is also realized that usury can exploit humans. The study also found that only 35 percent of Catholics understood the prohibition of usury. The main deliberation of Catholics in exhausting banking services is data confidentiality.
