Catechumenate

Those who decide to enter the Church and are being trained for a life in Christ are called catechumens, an ancient name from the early Church. In this stage, you're developing your faith and are being "catechized" — learning catechism, or the basic points about Catholic faith and life.

Inquiry

This is the initial period before you decide to enter the Catholic Church. You're asking questions and checking it out, but aren't yet ready to commit.

Purification and Preparation

The Church will help you focus and intensify your faith as you prepare to commit your life to Christ and be received into the Church at Easter.

Initiation

This is the culmination of the whole process. You're received into the Church during the Easter Vigil Mass, where you'll receive the sacraments of initiation: baptism, confirmation and Eucharist. If you've already been baptized, you won't be baptized again.

Mystagogy

After reception into the Church at Easter, this period lets you reflect and learn more about the mysteries of the Mass and the Sacraments that you now participate in fully.
