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!
To return all you need to do is show up at Mass on Sunday or contact us so that we can greet you personally and introduce you to those who might be sitting near you at Mass. You are always welcomed at St. Catherine of Siena! It might be helpful to introduce yourself to one of the priests or deacons so that they can welcome you and journey with you. If you have been away from the sacrament of reconciliation, it might be helpful to experience God's love and mercy available in the sacrament. Whereever you are, we are here to journey with you and are here to support you in whatever way that we can!
"He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the Cross, and you will find yourself entirely." - St. Catherine of Siena, Letter T316
