Many people have questions which make them want to learn more about the Catholic faith.

Are you a baptized Christian of another faith who wants to know a little more about the Catholic faith?

Have you thought before about becoming Catholic but aren’t sure how to do it?

Are you unsure about what Christians believe?  Or who Jesus Christ is?  Would you like to hear more about it?

Do you know only a little about “God” in general and would you like to explore the concept a bit more?

Are a baptized Catholic who has not received First Communion or Confirmation?

If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, we’d be glad to help!  Why not come in to chat?   Or enroll in our next “Inquiry” session.

What is "Inquiry"? 

Simply put, Inquiry is a 10-12 session short course which unfolds basic teachings about the Catholic faith. 

Inquiry is informative.  Participate in presentations of the key points of the Catholic faith so that you may consider them openly and honestly.  Inquiry is a period of learning for both those who have and those who haven’t decided to become Catholic.  Looking more deeply at the teaching of Christ and his Church is a step which helps everyone understand more deeply.  Inquiry is informal and friendly.  An opportunity to meet and talk with Catholics in the parish community.  Inquiry is a time for questions.  Raise questions concerning Catholic beliefs and practices, those you have now as well as those which arise as you learn the faith in more detail.  Inquiry is not a commitment to fully embrace the Catholic faith.  Inquiry is a period of exploration and discernment.  If you decide, based on the Inquiry process, that you would like to become Catholic, we will be happy to discuss that with you.  Inquiry is necessary.  This will be your first step if you decide to become Catholic.  Everyone who wishes to be Catholic is asked to participate in this period of Inquiry.
