We would like to welcome home those who have been away from the Church. The 7 week series includes a discussion of the concerns of those returning and an updating in the beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith.
It is very helpful for a person who is considering returning to have a spiritual companion who is present at the meetings during the 7 weeks. No formal training is necessary. If you would like to be a companion, or if you are thinking about returning, contact Carol Becker firstname.lastname@example.org 858-354-7085 or Steve Diamond email@example.com or just come to the first meeting.
Next 7 Week Series starts September 19th!
The program includes updating in the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church, listening to the stories of those who have been away and, most importantly, helping them reconcile any negative feelings they may have about the Church.
Many of the team members have themselves been away from the Church for a number of years and are uniquely suited to appreciating the stories of those who are considering returning.
The Returning Catholics group provides a community for those returning and familiarizes them with other parish ministries.
The program ends with an opportunity to experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the context of a relaxed scripture-based reconciliation service.
