I apologize if this is the wrong place to put this thread.
I know so many people who are ex-Catholics. Does your parish/diocese have programs to reach out to them, to encourage them to “come home”?
A parish near me had a program last year, a 6 week program where alienated Catholics could come and air concerns and grievances and be assured that people would listen. There were programs in place if these people wanted to return to the church.
When I came back in 2011, after 17 years away, I emailed a local parish. A deacon got back to me and offered to meet me with his wife. We met for a long time. I did most of the talking and they listened. At the end I made a confession to a priest and I was back.
