Come Discover How Jesus is the Way to Happiness!

Discovery is part of the CCO Faith Study Series and is a collection of helpful resources to clearly and simply explain truths and principles for living the Catholic faith. Each lesson integrates Scripture and Church teachings in its small group discussion.
Groups are forming now! Please contact Heather if you are interested.
Catholics Come Home
There’s an old saying that goes, “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or for quite some time, but now you feel a tug at your heart calling you back to the Catholic Church. Listen to that tug. It’s your Heavenly Father reaching his arms out to you, the Holy Spirit whispering in your ear, hoping to draw you home.We hope you accept this as your invitation to rediscover the truth, wonder and mystery of the Catholic faith. As your brothers and sisters in our worldwide Catholic family, we want you back. We’ve missed you, and our Church is not the same without you.
Regardless of why you left or got out of the habit of going to Mass, you can always come home and return to the practice of the sacraments and the fullness of relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church he founded. We are Catholic. Welcome home.
