Want to Become Catholic?

Students are expected to have completed one year of religion classes at Bishop O'Connell before beginning the process of entering the Church. Any interested student should come speak to Father Thompson about the possibility of becoming Catholic.

Students would normally meet with the Chaplain individually or in small groups on a weekly basis.

Although these are difficult times for many people, it would be dishonest and irresponsible for someone to seek Baptism in order to receive a discounted tuition rate. Rather, the desire to become Catholic should stem from an authentic belief in the teachings of the Church and desire to live them out on a daily basis.
