Becoming Catholic

The Catholic Church is unlike any other organization on earth. In fact, it is more accurate to call the Church an “organism” – a living body: Christ’s body.

Why be Catholic?

To become Catholic is to become part of His body – a process that begins with Baptism and continues forever. Being Catholic in today’s world provides great challenges and opportunities for personal growth and self-awareness, and also a solid foundation for a life of community and relationship with God.
