Jesus Christ invites everyone to come to him in the Catholic Faith, including:
- those who have no religious background
- baptized members of other Christian communities
- lapsed Catholics.
How do I become Catholic?
You can become a Catholic by receiving the Sacraments of Initiation:
- Baptism (spiritual rebirth)
- Confirmation (sacred anointing by the Holy Spirit)
- Holy Eucharist (Holy Gifts of Jesus’ Body and Blood).
Baptized non-Catholic Christians are welcomed into the Church through:
- the confession of sins (Sacrament of Penance)
- the profession of Faith (Creed)
- receiving the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist
Where do I Start?
Contact the Catholic Enquiry Centre Director and talk to him about what you want to do. He will explain the process of becoming a Catholic, and help you contact a parish community that will prepare you. Or, contact your nearest Catholic parish.
