Pathways into the Church

There are three sacramental pathways into the Church. If you're already baptised in the Catholic faith and would now like to learn more about your faith you would most likely be looking for Confirmation and possibly the Eucharist (Holy Communion). If you are a baptised Christian but are looking to explore the Catholic faith the pathways would be Reception, Confirmation and Eucharist. If you are not baptised you would be asking for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist which are the Sacraments of Initiation.
