Full initiation into the Catholic community is experienced through the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist (first communion). Inquiry is the first step in the process that leads to adults to full initiation. Our starting point is always God who deeply loves and who is constantly whispering, calling and nudging us closer to Him. Adults encounter divine love noticeably through life changing events: new relationships, marriage, the birth of a child, divorce, the death of a loved one. We may also perceive the subtle peace or calm presence of a Catholic colleague or friend and wonder where “it” comes from. Perhaps we were baptized as infants or in other faith traditions and yearn to be fed at the table, or we wish to receive communion with our children and decide to pursue a route parallel to their faith formation. Inquiry is an opportunity to respond to God’s invitation.
We believe faith is a gift and a person in Jesus Christ. When we connect the joys and struggles of our lives to the life of Jesus, we experience something more. This “something more” is life-changing. It defines how we hope, whom we love, and what we live for. During Inquiry the seeds of hope, love, and life centered on Jesus sprout and begin to take root.
Inquiry is a time to ask questions, to consider one’s relationship with God and the teachings of the church. It is a time to begin to discover God’s dream for us. We meet weekly throughout the year. There are no strings, requirements or expectations. We provide a safe environment to explore God at work in our lives and in our community. Come and see.
