Welcome Back to the Catholic Church!
The Welcome Back program is for anyone who has been away from active participation in the Church for a while. The group meets for 3 sessions and then a final Mass. It is run by other people from past years who have come back to church through this program. We talk about the topics the participants want to learn more about and support people in their journey back into the Church. We welcome you to be welcomed back to Church through this program.
It begins on Thursday, January 16th at 7:30pm and continues on January 23rd and 30th. We'll meet in the parish library. To get to this room, we'll have people stationed at the glass doors at the front of the main church. If you go to the church they'll walk you to the library. Then there is a final event, a Mass where everything is EXPLAINED (we call it a "Teaching Mass") in the old chapel out front along Central Avenue on Tuesday, February 4th. For more information please contact Rick at email@example.com; Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org; or Sue at email@example.com.
The first session starts with a few previous “graduates” of our “welcome back” programs telling their stories about leaving and coming back (for many reasons) and then anyone else is invited to tell their stories.
Members of the “WELCOME BACK TEAM” are used to meeting with people all through the year one-on-one, and would welcome a call or email from you at any time. They can meet to talk over coffee, or meet you at Mass and attend one weekend with you.
OR you can talk to myself, Fr. Andy Aaron, at 410-269-0586 or email firstname.lastname@example.org; our adult education coordinator, Christy Cosgrove at 410-269-0586 ext. 34 or email email@example.com.

Please see the document on how and why to return to Sunday Mass.
Peace, and please know that we are praying for you. We hope that we can help in some way to WELCOME you back; though we know that, ultimately, it has got to be the work of the Lord, so YOU keep praying too.
Fr. Andy, 2019
