You've joined the Church or rediscovered your faith: Now what? If you're at a loss about how to participate fully in the Church, connect with your local parish, and understand all those "quirky" Catholic things they didn't cover in your catechism classes, this book can help. It offers practical advice and clears up misconceptions about what it means to be Catholic.
Patrick Madrid is the perfect coach—able to offer encouragement when things seem odd or difficult, explain why Catholics say and do (and don’t say or do) certain things, and help new converts fully live their Catholic faith. Here is a practical guide for all those who feel out of their element now that they are in the Catholic Church.
Patrick Madrid is a life-long Catholic. He has authored or edited sixteen Catholic books including Search and Rescue, Where Is That in the Bible and the acclaimed Surprised by Truth series. Patrick serves as the director of the Envoy Institute, which is dedicated to teaching Catholics how to explain their faith more intelligently, defend it more charitably, and share it more effectively.
Now What? is the perfect read for those new to the Catholic faith, as well as for long-time believers looking to jump-start their faith.
