Catholics make up the largest single denomination of any religious group in the U.S. and the second largest group is made up of former Catholics. We all have friends or relatives who have left the Church for one reason or another.
Come Home to the Catholic Church
“There’s an old saying that goes, ‘Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.’ Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or for quite some time, but now you feel a tug at your heart calling you back to the Catholic Church. Listen to that tug. It’s your Heavenly Father reaching His arms out to you, the Holy Spirit whispering in your ear, hoping to draw you home.
Regardless of why you left or got out of the habit of going to Mass, you can always come home and return to the practice of the sacraments and the fullness of relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church he founded. We are Catholic. Welcome home.” (excerpted from Catholics Come Home)
All Are Always Welcome
Whatever the reason, the Church wants to welcome all who want to live as a Catholic. We’ve missed you, and our Church is not the same without you. Come home.
I want to come home!
