Jesus, the Good Shepherd, leaves the 99 sheep to seek the one that is lost. And, when he finds it, he brings it home, and calls everyone in heaven to rejoice more over the one repentant sinner than over the 99 who have no need of repentance."
Gospel of St. Luke 15:3-7
We would like to address your questions and make you feel at home once more in the Catholic Church. We will be conducting informal Zoom Q&A sessions beginning Thurs. Sept. 24th from 7-8 p.m. Please email Verne Bowers at email@example.com should you wish to participate.
As soon as strict restrictions are lifted, we can schedule the 6 part weekly series program to discuss: Changes in the Catholic Church today since Vatican II, structure of the Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist (the Mass), Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession), AND The Nicene Creed (what Catholics believe.)
We are using “The Parish Guide for Implementing Catholics Returning Home Ministry—Outreach to Non-Practicing Catholics authored by Sally L. Mews. Her ministry to non-practicing Catholics was born out of her own experience returning to the Church after so many years of being separated. Catholics Returning Home (CRH) was recognized by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in “A Time to Listen...A Time to Heal,” as a model program for reaching out to non-practicing Catholics.
CRH sessions are offered as a six-week series led by CRH Team Members: Mary Palmer, Michelle Hayes, Mike and Laura Blakey, Jerry and Verne Bowers. All sessions are structured in a support-group format.
For more information, please call Verne Bowers (916) 479-3930 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to having a conversation with all prospective participants.
