ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TURN TO OUR SPIRITUAL MOTHER FOR GUIDANCE!
Do you know someone who has left the Church?
Most of us do not have to look very far to find non-practicing Catholics in our circle of family and friends.
Many of us are concerned about these loved ones, but we don't know how to help them.
Obviously, most of them are searching, but how can we help them find their way home?
As baptized, practicing Catholics, we have a precious gift of faith and love from the Lord that needs to be shared with our non-practicing brothers and sisters.
We need to need to pray for them turn to Mary pray the rosary, say a novena, the saints are rockstars and are there to help you with your intention.
If you know their Confirmation Saint as them for help.
Remember this is God's work not yours he is working in their life already you are here to help them see how the Lord is working in their life!
We all desire to be included and a personal invitation is everything. Sometimes all you need to do is say
"do you want to go to Mass with me?"
You don't know the battles they have faced Many non-practicing Catholics carry with them a tremendous amount of guilt and misinformation about the Church and are afraid of approaching the church for fear of being rejected.
You can make a tremendous difference in someone's life simply by reaching out to them and telling them that we miss them and would like for them to come back home to our Church family.
Most non-practicing Catholics are waiting for an invitation to return.
Many mistakenly think they are excommunicated and are not welcome to return for a variety of reasons.
At St. Joseph's Church we have a special program to help non-practicing Catholics return to the Church entitled "Catholics Come Home."
