If you are asking can one remain a Catholic if one believes that God created the scientific laws that exist in the survival of the fittest and the adaptation of a species to it’s enviornment, but does not “micro-manage” each step of evolution. I think you could remain a good Catholic.

If you are asking if one can believe that evolution happened without God putting it into motion, ie that God is not the creator of all things, no. You have to assent to God being the author of Creation to be a Catholic in good standing. How he did it has not been revealed, and even today there are scientists who have disproven some of the theories of Newton, and Darwin, while upholding other theories. The fact is how God accomplished the creation of the universe out of nothing is something we may not know 100% in this life.
