I've Been Away from the Catholic Church... Can I Come Back Home?

If you've been away from the church for 1 or 50 years, you are 100% welcome at St. Agnes and St. Rose of Lima.
 

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.

"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."

-St. Augustine, Confessions
