Reconnect with your Faith through Catholics Returning Home at St. Mary Immaculate Parish

Catholics Returning Home is a program to help Catholics reconnect with their faith and renew their relationship with Christ. There is no obligation or cost. Join us and you will find a:

  • Supportive, non-judgmental group where you can freely explore your concerns and questions:
  • Small community with others thinking about returning, recently returned Catholics, and clergy:
  • Safe haven in which private issues are identified and dealt with privately, with compassion;
  • Warm environment where you will be welcomed.
