Returning Catholics

Catholics Come Home

The Catholic Church is the largest Christian denomination in the United States, accounting for about 25 percent of the country’s population, and it continues to grow. It is a vibrant, active community of believers which has a positive influence on the lives of others, and many people choose to convert to Catholicism. However, there are people who, for one reason or another, have stopped actively participating in the Church and attending Mass.

We live in a busy culture and society, with many demands placed on us daily, yet we still search for a deeper sense of meaning, for a closer relationship with God, and for a more authentic spiritual identity.

Since the Church is a family, we miss those Catholics who may have left the Church or who have stopped participating in its liturgy and sacramental life. Perhaps you or someone you know is in this situation, and you do not know how to come back or if you even have the opportunity. The first thing you need to know is that you are always welcome. The Church and your community of faith miss you, and we hope you will choose to come home.  You are the prodigal son, and we are the father overjoyed at your return!

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 have recently returned to the Catholic faith, themselves, and want to share their positive experiences with others. Many never really 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.


Please feel free to explore any questions you may have about the Catholic Church or how you can return to an active participation in the Church by visiting the Catholics Come Home website.
