Real People, Real Stories

Take some time to view these powerful, real stories from former fallen-away Catholics who have come home to the Catholic Church. They testify about how the world and other life situations drew them away from their faith, but by God’s grace, they felt a tug at their heart inviting them home to their family in the Church. We hope that their stories will encourage you, and will serve as your own personal invitation to come back to the Catholic Church. Jesus and your fellow Catholic brothers and sisters are waiting with open arms to welcome you home!
