Thinking of Coming Home?
We're here to help.

We hope you're here because of a good conversation you've had with someone about either becoming Catholic or reconnecting with your Catholic Faith.

If you haven't been baptized, you'll enter into the Order of Catechumens, the body of those who are preparing for reception into the Church. To become a Catholic is no small task, and so it's important that you are acquainted with the mysteries of Faith that we believe and profess. This is the purpose of the catechumenate.

If you're already validly baptized in a Christian Church in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, you'll likely become a candidate for full communion. This means that you'll take some of the same instructions as those in the Order of Catechumens to give you the formation necessary to make your official Profession of Faith and proceed forward in the Sacramental life of the Church.

If you've been away from the Church but are already fully initiated into the Catholic Church by receiving the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and The Holy Eucharist, you'll probably need to meet with the priest to talk about your journey and discern the best way forward.

Often, those who have been away from the Church have spent some time in another Christian ecclesial community. It's possible you've received some formation in those communities that are contrary to what Catholics believe. After going through The Creed in a period of prayer and reflection (with the priest, a member of the parish trained to assist with this process, or within the Order of Christian Initiation courses) you'll be invited to go to Sacramental Reconciliation (Confession) and then make your Profession of Faith–reciting the Creed that you've studied and can now take up as your own!

How Long Does it Take?

It's important to note that every case isn't the same, and so the timeframe may be different depending upon your circumstances. But, we believe that the Holy Spirit is guiding your discernment process. It's not always easy to trust in God's timeframe, but discernment and formation are always worth the time taken, precisely because The Lord's Hand is at work!
