RECONNECT WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH:

It happens to many Catholics at some point in their lives, unfortunately; some practising Catholics begin drifting away from the Church. For some it's after college when they're busy and focused on their careers, for others it's a divorce, and still others feel they've been hurt by the Church. Whatever the reason, it is never too late to return to the Catholic faith. Your first step is to call the St. Mary’s Parish Office for an informal, confidential, and strictly non-judgmental conversation. You might be surprised at how easy it is, and how much better you'll feel. No matter the reason, you are welcome to explore the ways you might return to a life full of the beauty, mystery, personal relationships with Christ, and sacraments of the Church. If you have questions about the Church and would feel more comfortable contacting us anonymously through email, you are welcome to send your thoughts to askthechurch@gmail.com. Again, all inquiries will be kept in the strictest confidence.
