Has there been something tugging at your heart, calling you back to the Catholic Church? Maybe you heard a story here, or read a quote there. Maybe a recent loss or trauma has raised up questions that you have been shying away from for a while. We invite you to listen to that tug and follow where that nudge may be leading you - because it could very well be leading you home, to the Catholic Church.

#10: Because they want meaning in life.
#9: Because childhood memories surface.
#8: Because they made mistakes.
#7: Because they need to forigve others.
#6: Because they want to be healed.
#5: Because the Catholic Church has the fullness of truth and grace.
#4: Because they want their children to have a faith foundation.
#3: Because they want to be part of a faith community.
#2: Because they want to help other people.
#1: Because they hunger for the Eucharist.
