We know that life always has ups and downs, twists and turns. Maybe you decided to leave decades ago or maybe it was just this morning. Maybe you never really decided one way or the other, but just sort of drifted away. Maybe you felt burned out or betrayed by an individual who was supposed to represent the Church. Maybe you thought the Church was too full of hypocrites or maybe you thought you were too much of a hypocrite to stay. Whatever your situation, we want it to be very clear that there is a place for you here with us!
How do I return to my Catholic faith?
If you simply stopped coming on your own, all you need to do is make a good confession! We offer confessions every Saturday starting at 3pm, every Wednesday at noon or by appointment. If you would like to talk to someone beforehand, please contact us and we would be happy to help you. Do not be afraid, ashamed, or embarassed if it has been awhile and you do not really remember how to go to confession, our priests would be happy to assist you!
What if I am divorced?
We understand that there are many people who shoulder the weight and pain of divorce. Let us help you bear the load. The first step is to contact us and set up an appointment with a priest or deacon. We can help you find healing and closure.
What if I was baptized Catholic, but missed First Communion?
You're not alone! If Catholicism is mostly new to you, it is probably best for you to look at our RCIA program. RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Please contact us and we can help you find the right program for your situation.
What if I was raised Catholic, but missed Confirmation?
Again, you're not alone! Each year we offer instruction to adults who have been baptized and received Holy Comunion, but have not been confirmed. Contact the Office of Faith Formation for additional information.
What if my question was not covered on this page?
Don't worry! No matter what your situation is, we can help you return to the Catholic Church. Please contact us, we would love to hear from you and offer help or advice in whatever way we can!
