St. Philip Neri carried this spirit throughout his life:

"A joyful heart is more easily made perfect than a downcast one."

Catholics Returning Home

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 however 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. First, we need to pray for them. Secondly, we need to extend a personal invitation to them to come home to the Catholic Church. 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.

 

Many non-practicing Catholics carry a tremendous amount of guilt and misinformation about the Church so they 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.

 

Saint Philip Neri Catholic Church in Kinder has a special program to help non-practicing Catholics return to the Church called Catholics Returning Home. The next series begins October 10 at 7:00p.m. at the home of Katherine Marcantel at 118 16th Street, Kinder. Please pass this article on to anyone who might be interested. For more information about Catholics Returning Home call Katherine Marcantel at 337-842-5813 or Troy Fuselier at 337-523-7526.
