How a does a person become a member of the Catholic Church? Ron Lewinski offers a basic but thorough introduction to the Catholic Church's way of inviting people into conversion and welcoming them into membership in the Catholic communion.
Welcoming the New Catholic, Third Edition, is a completely rewritten and updated version of the book that has introduced thousands to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. It is an excellent text for new and experienced initiation team members, for clergy and parish staff members, for students, and for anyone who wishes to know how the church welcomes new Catholics and why. It is ideal for parish continuing education programs.
