Exploring entry into the Catholic Church

Is God calling you to become Catholic?

It begins with awareness... or stirring in one's heart for something more. It could be curiosity or a sense of longing for fulfillment. Maybe it's God calling you to explore the life of faith, love and justice within the community of the Catholic Church...
