Are you or someone you know Catholic, but have drifted away from the faith? Maybe you’ve stopped attending Mass on most Sundays. Perhaps you felt hurt or ignored by the Church at some time in the past. Or maybe you believe some event in your past means you aren’t wanted by the Church anymore.
First and foremost, know that God loves you, no matter what. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to save all of us, including those who struggle with their faith. God misses your presence in worship. Maybe His Holy Spirit is at work right now, inviting you to consider coming back.
The St. Thomas More community misses you as well. We are all members of Christ’s family, and our family is not complete without you. So if you’re considering returning to your Catholic faith and rejoining the community of worship, we’d like to help. Even if you aren’t ready but want to ask questions, we want to help you find answers.
Check out Awakening Faith, a program for returning Catholics.
Starting May 3, 2017, St. Thomas More is offering a program called Awakening Faith. This is six informal sessions in a small, safe environment where you can reconnect with your faith, ask questions, share with a few others, and listen for God’s voice speaking to you.
Through the recently-concluded Jubilee Year for Mercy, Pope Francis reminded us of God’s infinite Love and Mercy for each and every person. Now may be a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your Catholic faith and come in contact with God’s compassionate, healing touch.
Interested? Please consider joining us at the Parish Center at the south end of the St. Thomas More campus on May 3 from 7 - 9 PM. No reservation needed, just come as you are. If you’d like more information or have questions, please feel free to call the parish office at (919) 942-1040.
Remember, God loves you, and wants the very best for you. May His richest blessings be on you today and always.
