“CATHOLICS RETURNING HOME” is a two-parish initiative of St. John the Evangelist and St. Joseph Churches.
If you are inactive in your parish, or if you know of friends and neighbors who no longer are active, invite them back!



“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?

And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’

I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.”

Parable of the lost sheep
Luke 15: 4-7


· Were you raised Catholic but do not come or seldom come to church anymore?
· Are you a Catholic who now feels separated from the church?
· Would you like to know more about the Catholic Church as it is today?
· Would you like to feel at home in the Church again?

No matter how long you have been away and no matter the reason,
we invite you to consider renewing your relationship with the Church.
