Becoming Catholic

Do you ever ask yourself…

What am I looking for in life?

What is the meaning of my life?

How can I be a better person?

What can I do about the loneliness I feel?

How can I come to know God’s love?

How can I know the right path God has in store for me?

If you are asking these questions, or questions like them, the Catholic way of life awaits you.  For centuries people have turned to the Church to find the answer to the deepest and hardest questions of everyday life.  Are you interested in finding out more about how to become a Catholic?

Please call Sabina Carter, at Holy Family, if you have questions or would like further information at 920-921-0580, email her at or click here to visit our website.
