How Do I?

Become a Catholic

Are you considering Catholicism?

Many have come to St. Joseph’s because you want a closer relationship with God.  Joining our Church will grow you in your faith and nourish you through the sacraments.

You will join a global movement and local family who will support you, and you will find many new opportunities to change the world.

Will you consider St. Joseph’s?

I did.  My name is Joe Liberto.  You may know me, I’m on the staff at St. Joseph’s.  You may have seen me around the parish.  I grew up in Cockeysville, and my father, Bob Liberto, has been a member of this parish since the late 70’s when my parents moved to Cockeysville from West Baltimore.

When I joined the staff in the late 1990’s, I came to St. Joseph’s with my Dad, but I wasn’t Catholic.  Perhaps like you, I loved that I could share with my father the mystery and the experience of the Mass.  I always felt, though, a missing link with the Church.  I believed in the faith, but I wanted to be part of the community and be able to participate fully in the Mass and in all of the sacraments.

Over the next year year, I studied the Catechism, talked to Priests, and went to classes at St. Joseph’s.

I still remember the indescribable feeling I had at the Easter vigil that year.  I will never forget it.  Joining St. Joseph’s was one of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done.

If you are interested in more information about the program, you can call Deacon Don Awalt through the office, at (410) 683 – 0600.  You can also call me at the same number.  I’d love to talk, and I’d love to answer your questions.
