ReMembering Church is a place for returning Catholics to explore their faith and future with the Church: To remember, to heal, to become part of the community.
During the course of the ten weeks, participants have an opportunity to explore and return to full participation in the Church and the Sacraments. Each session includes an informational topic such as Trinity, Church, Jesus, sacraments, morality and prayer. The sessions also include information about current Church practices and beliefs. ReMembering Church is designed to answer participants’ questions in an informal setting. Participants have an opportunity to share their journeys and struggles, and listen to others as they share their stories. The ReMembering Church team provides tools for reflecting on one’s spirituality and life experiences. Following the final session, all the participants are invited to experience a morning or evening of prayer and reflection which includes a Eucharistic celebration.
Holy Family offers ReMembering sessions two or three times a year (fall, winter and spring).
