Returning Catholics

The Catholic Church is the largest Christian denomination in the United States, accounting for about 25 percent of the country’s population.We are very large family! Since the Church is a family, we miss those Catholics who may have left the Church or who have stopped participating in its vibrant liturgy and sacramental life. Perhaps you or someone you know are in this situation and do not know how to come back or how to become active again. The first thing you need to know is that you are always welcome back. The Church misses you and asks that you prayerfully consider coming back home as an active member.

If you are exploring the possibility of coming back to the Catholic faith, we would be honored to walk that journey with you by listening to your concerns, answering your questions, and helping you to discern God's calling in your life. You are important to us and we have been praying for you to come back home to your Catholic faith.

If you would prefer to initially learn about returning to the Catholic faith on your own, Catholics Come Home is a great way to start. Catholics Come Home is a non-profit, independent charity whose purpose is to invite inactive Catholics, and others searching for a faith home, to the Catholic faith. Their informative and interactive website helps to answer questions about Church teachings and gives an overview of the Catholic faith. Some of its founders and supporters recently returned to the Catholic faith and want to share their positive experiences with others. Many never left the Church, but recently grew to understand and appreciate their Catholic faith more deeply. All feel part of a big Catholic family, who sincerely hope others will also find more peace, real answers, and true happiness through the gift of faith.

Below are some additional links about
the Catholic faith:

"God is love.” His is not a sentimental, emotional kind of love, but the love of the Father who is the origin of all life, the love of the Son who dies on the Cross and is raised, the love of the Spirit who renews human beings and the world. Thinking that God is love does us so much good, because it teaches us to love, to give ourselves to others as Jesus gave himself to us and walks with us. Jesus walks beside us on the road through life.
--Pope Francis
