Welcoming Catholics Home this Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.  Lent is a time of repentance, of turning back to the Lord.  In our parishes we are praying and working for another return – a return to the Church of those who have been away for whatever reason.  It is our Welcoming Catholics Home program, which starts on Tuesday March 15 at St. Bernard Church.

Do you know Catholics who have stopped practicing their faith?  Most of us do!    Did you know that one of the most common reasons people give for not going to Church is that no one ever invited them?  I challenge you to invite one person to come back.  Ask them to come to our first session on March 15 at 6:30pm in the Church Hall at St. Bernard Church.  You can hand them a pamphlet (available in all our churches.)  You can send them the link to our Welcoming Catholics Home page.  You can invite them on Facebook or Twitter by clicking the share buttons below this post.   And if YOU have been away, consider  yourself invited home.  We miss you!
