Until now discerning a vocation for baptism may well have been quite private and may not go any further. However if the call is strong and persistent then the next step can be to ask the Church to help in the discernment of a vocation.
It is suggested that you approach a priest or another person of Catholic faith who is known and trusted and ask them to help see the Lord’s hand at work in your life and to recognise the way in which He is guiding and calling you.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process given to us by the Church to initiate adults and older children into Christianity as it is lived in the Roman Catholic tradition.
You can join an RCIA group which is a faith exploration and sharing group, including catechists and parishioners which meets on a regular basis, usually weekly, to support and inform interested youth and adult “enquirers”. Anyone is welcome to come to these sessions without making any sort of commitment.
