Thank you for accepting our invitation to learn more about Catholics Come Home and returning to your Catholic faith !

God, our father, created a big and loving family in his Church. Jesus prays that we are one (John 17:21-23), as he and his father in heaven are one. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we wish to invite you to learn more about our family in faith : a Church filled with beauty, miracles, heroes, history, love and peace.
Whether you are on a journey into the Catholic Church or returning to the Catholic Church, you have come to a good place. Our goal is to provide you with a very wide array of helpful and thought-provoking resources that will help you understand more clearly the Catholic Church and its teachings.
At Catholics Come Home, we promise to always give you the honest truth, with nothing held back. We won’t shy away from difficult subjects, nor will we refrain from pointing out the many beautiful, wonderful, and even miraculous aspects of the Catholic Church.
We also sincerely pray that you will not shy away from a careful examination of the biblical and historical facts presented here, and that you will sincerely and prayerfully consider that there may be much more to the case for Catholicism than you may have ever realized. You will find it interesting to learn that the Catholic faith is the largest Christian family in the United States (and the world), accounting for 25% of the U.S. population, and a growth rate of 11% in the past decade ! So, you can see, the Catholic Church continues to be a vibrant and growing family…but we do truly miss our brothers and sisters in faith who have not been at Mass lately.
Our lives on earth should be a wholehearted search for God and His truth. For some, the search is easy and quick, for others it can be long and laborious. The purpose of Catholics Come Home is to make your search for the fullness of truth easier and more fruitful.
The old saying is so true : God loves you. He loves you so much that he sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and rise again from the dead to redeem and save you from sin and alienation. And, as Christ himself promised, I will not leave you orphans (John 14:18). He established a Church, the Catholic Church, with all its human imperfections as the shelter from the storms of this life.
God loves you so much that He will not stop searching for you, reaching out to you, and seeking you, so he can bring you safely home to a big, warm, and loving Catholic family. But God is gentle... the choice is yours.
As the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen once remarked, Love is a mutual self-giving that ends in self-recovery. You recover God, and He recovers you.
We missed you. Welcome home !
