Catholics Come Home!

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.

We hope you accept this as your invitation to rediscover the truth, wonder and mystery of the Catholic faith. As your brothers and sisters in our worldwide Catholic family, we want you back. We’ve missed you, and our Church is not the same without you.

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.

This website offers tons of great information to help you in your search for answers.  For many of us, those years of catechism may have left you with questions -we now have such wonderful tools to help us understand the full depth of our Catholic Faith.  Be sure to visit - Log into our parish subscription (info found right here on our parish homepage).  Here too, you will be amazed at how much the Church has grown in the teaching tools that help us to learn bout the depth our faith.
