Some tips to help you on your journey back to the Catholic Church:
Recognize that your Father in Heaven wants you to come home. Regardless of what’s happened in your life or how long you’ve been away, you can always come home to the Catholic Church. And the Lord wants you to come home.
Think for a minute about Christ’s parable of the Prodigal son. The young man had walked away from his father, certain that he was doing the right thing by leaving. 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! You can be sure that the angels and the saints in heaven and your own Heavenly Father will rejoice that day you come home to the Catholic Church.

Study the Bible.

There are a myriad of Bible study options out there, but not all of them are trustworthy and solidly rooted in the 2,000-year tradition of the Catholic Church’s biblical teachings.
