*Subject to license and copyright requirements below.


This 2-page handout is an invitation to return to Church or become Catholic. The article explains that going to Mass is good because we need Christian community, the Church helps us to understand God, and worshiping at home isn’t enough.

It says: The way God designed things, you can never be completely satisfied alone. You can never resolve these feelings alone. God designed us to need each other. He wants us to be joined as a Church that depends on togetherness. Only this way can we find support in the midst of our problems. Only this way can we remain standing strong against the onslaught of the world’s evil.

You can also customize the second page with a message of invitation and your church’s contact information. Enter your Welcome Home message, RCIA/OCIA invitation, or Mass schedule.

Beth Solis, a group facilitator in Oklahoma, says, "Our members asked us in the beginning if we minded taking things slowly so we could have time to really discuss each paragraph. We always have such great discussion! The PPT has been very helpful and is a nice addition."

Feedback from a study group in Florida

Sylvia says, "This experience deepened my love for the Eucharist in ways I couldn’t imagine when we first started this course."

Tim says, "Being the only convert in the group, I ascertained a better and stronger understanding of the importance of the Eucharist, not only in the Mass but also in my daily life."

Jimmy says, "I learned so much about the Eucharist that was powerful and enlightening. This course helped deepen my faith and my appreciation for the Holy Mass."
