Welcome back and welcome home
First, know that you are welcome! Know that we want to work with you, whatever your situation. And remember, "All things are possible with God." Trust in the Lord. The most important thing in starting the process is prayer to our Lord from your heart. There is no better way to do this than conversing with our Lord before the Blessed Sacrament. He is present with us. St. John Francis Regis has adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and confession every Wednesday evening.
Along with a return to prayer, consider the following...
Come to Mass
Come join us on Sunday, come back to The Mass! Check out our Mass times and come join us on Sundays.
Know you are not alone
As well, find encouragement in the fact that you are not alone on your journey back home to the Catholic Church. Take time to listen to the testimonies of other Catholics who have been in your shoes.
Go to Confession
Perhaps you are weighed down by the troubles in your life that have occurred while you were outside the Church. Whether you have been away from the Church for fifteen years or forty three years, our Lord wants to free you of that burden and offer healing through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
If you have been away from the Church for many years it would be best to make an appointment for confession. Within the sacrament of confession, this would allow for a chance for spiritual direction. You can call us here at the parish to set up this appointment. If you are in such a situation, for further advice, click here.
Study the Faith, find your answers
Chances are you are hungering to know your faith... Come join one of our opportunities for Faith Formation here at St. Regis, or register for a class that reignites your faith at the Bishop Helmsing Institute... also, tune into Catholic radio locally at 1090 AM, or listen online.
"Late have I loved you, O Beauty, ever ancient, ever new, late have I loved you! You were within me, but I was outside, and it was there that I searched for you. You called, you shouted, and you broke through my deafness. You breathed your fragrance on me; I drew in breath and now I pant for you. I have tasted you, now I hunger and thirst for more. You touched me, and I burned for your peace."
