    Try weekday Masses. There are few people. Greet them. Find out about organization like feeding homeless or prayer groups. If you see any people you have greeted from daily Mass, invite them to coffee.

    Chat with the Pastor. If you are young, the youth minister. If you are older the RCIA director.

    Don't feel the need to be in a rush. If you see people you know at Sunday Mass from work or school talk to them about the Faith.

    Watch the bulletin for announcement about inquiry sessions. This is where you can ask questions about things you have heard about us that sound weird and get the straight scoop.

    The traditions of the Church are taught in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The word Catechism comes from the the Greek word "katēkhizein" which means "echoing phrase" the teachings are each the oral and scriptural traditions of the Church. The Pope is the Bishop of Rome the successor of St. Peter whom Christ Jesus appointed to guide His Church, and St. Peter is the leader of the Apostles. The Saints are canonized men and women that died in Christ Jesus, they are attributed to being purchaser/ess of specific facets of intervention. Comparable to St. Lucy is the saint of the Blind, St. Michael the Archangel is the saint of law Enforcement and squaddies, St. Jude is the saint of misplaced factors. Catholics consider that the Saints are counted amongst the living now not amongst the lifeless considering they've been given their reward of eternal existence. And sense they're with our Lord in heaven we ask them to intercede to God on our behalf, essentially we pray to them and so they communicate to God on our behalf. The object to keep in mind that a Saint is famous via Christ Church as being one of the most Holy Ones in heaven, the opposite word "saint" means someone who is in heaven. The hyperlink under is the Catechism of the Catholic Church 2nd version.

    The best way to start is by dropping by your nearest Catholic parish and have the Priest enroll you into a RCIA class and then buy a New American Standard and a Strong's Concordance and you will be off to a really great start.-Jesus Christ

    All of the teachings of the Catholic Church (as well as where that teaching came from) is in The Catechism of the Catholic Church.

    If you are looking for general information then call one of the parishes, (or if there is a Catholic college) in your area and set up an appointment with one of the priests/brothers/nuns.
