Catholics Coming Home


If you've been away from the Church, or are drifting away from it, if you've been hurt by the Church or are confused or angry because of your "Catholic experience," come and talk with us. No matter how long you have been away and for whatever reason, consider renewing your relationship with the Catholic Church by participating in Catholics Coming Home.

Catholics Coming Home Program

An Invitation to Consider …

We would like to welcome those men and women who might be returning to the Church. Catholics Coming Home is an outreach to those who might have drifted away from regular participation in our Church, allowing them to take another look. If you are considering returning to the Catholic Church, we invite you to take advantage of this opportunity we have planned for you. Call 612.317.3473 for more information, or just come to our opening session.

A Participant Shares . . .  

Recently, a 2010 participant in the Catholics Coming Home Program sent the following note:

“Hi. Just a note to let you know how I’m doing. I have been going to Mass a few days a week. Even went to reconciliation last week and made my first confession in 35 years. I have found the rosary and say it every day. Reading the daily readings has been a great inspiration for me. The CCH program opened my eyes and heart. Thank you so much.”   - Catholics Coming Home attendee
