Catholics Returning Home is a six-week series that provides a safe, welcoming environment for non-practicing Catholics who are discerning a return to a full, active life in the Church.
Developed by Sally Mews, the CRH program has been successfully implemented all over the country for a number of years, and has been approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The Cathedral of Christ the King began offering CRH in 2006, with a dedicated team of volunteers.
Participants are encouraged to express their feelings, raise questions, and discuss concerns, in an informal, non-judgmental, small-group setting. The CRH team members are there to facilitate this journey of discernment, including prayer support, and guiding participants to resources that can help.
Here is the outline of the series:
Week 1 — Introduction, with participants sharing where they are on the journey
Week 2 — Video and discussion
Week 3 — Vatican II and Current Trends in the Church (with Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv.)
Week 4 — The Mass and The Eucharist (with Deacon Tim Weinmann)
Week 5 — Sin, Moral Decision-making, and Reconciliation (with Fr. Paul Prabell)
Week 6 — The Creed, Precepts of the Church, and What next?
