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.
