- through baptism
You are not a Christian yet ...
Faith Orientation accompanies women and men on their way to baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist (communion). After a course lasting about six months, Archbishop Reinhard Cardinal Marx will baptize you. The baptism takes place at Easter. Please contact us even if you cannot participate in the faith courses. In some cases we also prepare people for baptism individually, if there are important reasons.
- through conversion
You would like to join the Catholic Church from another Christian denomination ...
We prepare you for this step in a course. These courses take place twice a year, before Advent and before Pentecost. They culminate in a solemn service with the Cardinal, either on the Second Sunday of Advent or on Pentecost Sunday. Fellow Christians from Reformed Churches will even receive the sacrament of Confirmation at this service.
From time to time we offer shorter course units, in order to delve deeper into a specific topic of faith. We are happy to respond to your suggestions here and to take up any questions and topics that might otherwise remain unaddressed or not get enough time to explore them sufficiently.
