People who were raised Catholic may drift away from the practice of their faith for many reasons, but it is never too late to come back. If you’re looking to reconnect with your Catholic faith the place to start is to introduce yourself to one of the staff or volunteers at Saint Julia Parish. It might seem frightening to share with someone that you’ve been away, but we are all a community striving to love God and each other better. We’re all on the way. Contact a parish staff member.
In addition to talking with a staff or volunteer, going to the Sacrament of Penance & Reconciliation (aka Confession) can help you make a fresh start with God and with the Church. Learn more about the Sacrament of Reconciliation at Saint Julia Parish.
Is there a ceremony or preparation for baptized Catholics who never or seldom have practiced the faith?
For Catholics who have been Baptized, Confirmed and made First Communion but then drifted from the faith, the way they return is through the Sacrament of Penance. Catholics who were baptized but never received Confirmation and/or Eucharist can participate in the process of continuing conversion. This process is completed with the reception of the sacraments of confirmation and Holy Communion at the Easter Vigil or during the Easter Season.”
