Become a Catholic

Welcome. Have you been away from the Church? Are you thinking about coming back? Do you know someone who wants to come home to the Catholic Church, but is struggling with their faith? Maybe you or someone you know has experienced one of these thoughts:

I grew up Catholic, but for some reason, I just sort of stopped going to Church…

I just moved to a new city, I tried going to a couple different parishes, but I never really felt welcomed…

After my marriage ended, I felt uncomfortable around my family, friends, and parish…

I just don’t understand why the Church teaches what it does! Some teachings seem so outdated…

If you have experienced one of these situations or thoughts you are not alone. The Church wants you to know that you are a child of God, called by name, precious in his eyes and loved by him (Is. 43:1,4). The Church also wants you to know that you are missed. When one member of the Body of Christ suffers, the entire Body of the Church suffers.
