This first step is to make sure you and each member of your family receives Sanctifying Grace (supernatural life). Without this Grace, living the Catholic Faith is not attainable, at least as God intended. This would be a good time for you and your spouse to begin praying for this worthy endeavor and discuss with your family.
- Sacraments – check and confirm everyone has received all Sacraments per their state in life.
- Confession – Go to Confession ASAP, then make at least a bi-monthly commitment.
- Mass – Commit to weekly Mass and Holy Days of obligation; go more frequently, daily is possible.
Keep in mind steps one and two are foundational to your journey. You need the Sacraments to receive Sanctifying Grace, enter into the Supernatural Life and Confession to help you stay in a State of Grace. When your family is ready, move on to the Next Step.
