Pre-trust

Someone in this stage either lacks or is unaware of any bridges of positive association with Jesus, a follower of Jesus, or something Christian.

Trust

Someone in this stage has at least one positive association with something Christian.

Curiosity

Someone in this stage has had his interest piqued regarding something Christian. He is suddenly aware of a new way to live and believe.

Pre-evangelization

The initial and still incomplete stage of evangelization that stimulates an interest in the faith and disposes one to receive the Gospel proclamation.

Openness

Someone in this stage is able to admit to God and to themselves that they are open to the possibility of personal and spiritual change.

Active Seeking

Someone in this stage is on an overt, spiritual quest to resolve the final barriers that prevent a commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus.

First Conversion

This is the first Decision Point on the path of discipleship, the moment when a person says, “I believe in Jesus. I want a personal relationship with Him. I repent of my sin. I’m ready to live according to Jesus’ will for me.”

First Proclamation

The proclamation of the saving message of who Jesus is and what He has done for us.

Beginning Disciple

Someone in this stage is new to the life of discipleship. He has decided for Jesus, but now what?

Growing Disciple

Someone in this stage is ready to go deeper in his knowledge, spirituality, quest for holiness, and responsibility in the parish.

Initiatory Catechesis

The stage that lays the basis for the Christian life of the followers of Jesus. It corresponds to the period of the catechumenate and purification & illumination in the catechumenal process.

Commissioning

This is the second Decision Point on the path of discipleship. It is both a commissioning (a sending forth) and a co-missioning (a “being on mission with” the Church and the Holy Spirit).

Missionary Disciple

Someone in this stage is “on mission.” His focus is not so much on himself as it is on the soul of the other – and when his focus is on himself, it is so that he can better serve the other.

Perfective Catechesis

In this stage, the baptized, assisted by multiple forms of ongoing education in the faith, seek to realize the desire of Christ: “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Missionary Initiation

This stage forms believers for mission, accompanying them in the maturation of attitudes of faith and making them aware that they are missionary disciples, called to participate actively in the proclamation of the Gospel and to make the Kingdom of God present in the world.

Kerygmatic Catechesis

A catechesis that is simultaneously Good News and that highlights the truth, goodness, and beauty in everything we believe and do as Catholics in possession of a saving message.
