Learning about the Catholic faith

Becoming Catholic

“The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’ They said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which translated means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come, and you will see.’ ”
John 1:37-39

“What are you looking for?” It seems that we are constantly searching. Jesus recognizes that we are looking for answers and invites us to follow him. Whether you are married to a Catholic and raising your children in the Catholic Church or have attended Mass with a friend or loved one and would like to explore this faith tradition more deeply, you are welcome to bring your questions to us. Whether an experience of the liturgy or the rich history and spirituality of the Catholic Church is of interest to you, Jesus invites you to come and see where he is staying.

Journey is a communal process of spiritual formation for unbaptized adults and older children (or baptized individuals who have minimal exposure to or understanding of the Christian faith and way of life) who seek to become members of the Catholic Church.This process involves conversion of mind and heart as well as immersion in what it means to be a Catholic Christian.

In addition, Holy Martyrs offers FOCUS, a special process tailored for those who have much exposure to the Christian faith and way of life but who are drawn to the Catholic Church.
