Interested in the Catholic Faith?

I’m Not Catholic

If you’re a Protestant, Evangelical or of another faith tradition; the website, Catholics Come Home has information pertaining to you. Or maybe you consider yourself an atheist, agnostic, or not really religious, than Catholics Come Home has information pertaining to you too. If you click on the link, you will find resources that will help you understand what we believe as Catholics. Non-Catholics who have explored our site are often surprised to find out that there is much more to Catholicism than they ever realized. Check it out. You have nothing to lose. We’re glad you’re here.

I’m Not Currently Attending Mass

If you were baptized Catholic but just haven’t been to Mass in a while, or maybe you left the practice of your Catholic faith for a particular reason, then this link to Catholics Come Home is for you. Entering this site will help you with information to help you consider a journey home to the Church. This site also features information on Church teachings. You will discover why it’s worth returning to the Catholic Faith, no matter how long you’ve been away or what’s happened while you’ve been gone. God will never stop searching for you. Jesus wants to invite you back into His big and loving Catholic family, in the Church He founded 2,000 years ago. Christ is calling you home, but the choice is ultimately yours. We’ve missed you and we’re glad you are here.
