Ask questions

Explore the faith and find answers to your questions.  Here's a start:

Talk to someone at your local parish

Call your local Catholic parish and ask to speak with a priest or someone who can help you explore the faith.  Consider joining a faith exploration talk or program like Alpha or Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) classes at a parish near you to learn more about the faith.

Start RCIA at your local parish

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is offered at most Catholic parishes for adults who are interested in exploring the Catholic church.  The first step to RCIA is inquiry, the initial period when you learn, ask questions in a non-judgmental atmosphere.  Contact your local parish to inquire about RCIA.  

Above all, persevere

Jesus said in Matthew 12:45 that the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking the perfect pearl.  When he found the pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.  Keep seeking and praying, and you will find your way home to Christ.
