Today's Readings
Hi Father Dan:

I HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR SOME TIME NOW – HOW DO I COME HOME AND BECOME ACTIVE AGAIN?
•    Recognize that your Father in Heaven wants you to come home. Regardless of what has happened in your life or how long you've been away, you can always come
home to the Catholic Church. And our Lord wants you to come home. Think about the Prodigal Son. The young man had walked away from his father. But eventually, he
had a change of heart and tentatively made his way home, full of doubts about whether his father would accept him back. The story has a happy ending. Not only did the
father welcome his son home again, but he threw a party in celebration of his son's return!

•   Call Father Berg and schedule a good visit. He would love to meet with you to hear about your journey home and to help your transition in becoming active again. During
this visit, any concerns or issues you had could be discussed. As well, he could determine whether you need any help with irregular sacramental situations, (for example:
getting your marriage con-validated if you were married outside the Church, addressing unbaptized or unconfirmed children, etc).
