through stages of asking and seeking
through beginning involvement with the Catholic Christian community
through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God
through study and discussion about the Catholic experience
through doubts and hesitations
through involvement in the works of charity and justice with those already committed to the catholic way of life
through discernment of God's call for them as individuals
through the steps of commitment
through the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist)
…to a life of faith, love, and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.
