The Catholic Church was established by Jesus - God incarnate -
whereas the Protestant sects were established by men.
The Catholic Church alone validly and lawfully confects the Holy
Eucharist - Christ's very flesh and blood!
Protestants sects have no authority or power to forgive your sins, whereas
the Catholic Church has this authority and power (see Jn. 20:23).

Does One Convert to Catholicism?
The normal process of conversion to Catholicism would involve your going to the
nearest (or any) Catholic church which is in communion with Rome [Note:
Contact the bishop for addresses / phone numbers] and
following the instructions provided by the priest. You should be
aware, however that since the Second Vatican Council of the
1960's, many priests have been shown to contradict the teachings
of the Church, and even to provide substandard (if not outright
erroneous) educational materials to those entering the Church.
Therefore, we strongly advise you to learn as much as possible
about the Catholic faith (click
here) so that you will not be confused if you encounter such an
unfortunate situation. "Sure signs" of an orthodox
Catholic parish may include: beautiful church interior (complete
with kneelers, beautiful statues, prominent tabernacle, relics in
altar), silent and reverent parishioners who are respectfully
dressed (especially with women wearing veils), reverent music, use
of the Latin language, and the lack of offensive "modern
art" (especially 1960's and later) & the lack of lay
'ministers'. All lawful Catholic parishes, however - no
matter how unpleasant looking or even (sadly!) irreverent - can
validly administer the Sacraments which will complete your
entrance into the Church.
