Exploring Your Faith

How did you find yourself here? How did you come to land on a web page about becoming a Catholic?

You may have come here via a search-engine, or from another website such as Sycamore or the Clifton Diocese.

You probably wonder if the Catholic church can help you find answers to questions that you have about yourself and the world.
You may be thinking that Christianity might be able to offer you a pathway to a more fulfilling, happier life.
You may not understand all the things that are going on in your life right now.
Wherever you are on your life’s journey, we would like to walk beside you.


Journey in Faith

Thinking of becoming a Catholic?

Each year thousands of adults choose to become Catholics. They come from different backgrounds for different reasons:

Some are already Christians from other traditions attracted by the teaching and practices of the Catholic Church and by the example of individual Catholics they know.

Some are from another faith or no faith at all who have heard about Jesus, His claim to forgive sin and His promise of eternal life.

Some are non-Catholics who have been coming regularly to Mass for years with their Catholic relatives. They wish now to become full members of the Church.

Some have had no previous contact with the Church at all but have this inner calling to discover the truth about the most important questions of life.

The programme is also for Catholics who missed out on the sacraments as children.

Most Catholics enter the Church through baptism as infants and receive the Eucharist and Reconciliation (First Communion and Confession) and Confirmation when young. However, there are many people who become Catholics, or receive the sacraments they have previously missed, later in life. The 'Journey in Faith' programme is the preparation for this.
