Return Ministry

St. Mary by the Lake & St. Matthew Return Ministry

The statistics are troubling: 6.5 people leave the Catholic Church for every one that joins, and 50% of young people who were raised Catholic are no longer Catholic today. The Catholic Church is hemorrhaging young people. Behind these statistics are countless stories of wounded families. Millions of parents are longing for their prodigal children to come home to the Church, crying: “Where did we go wrong?”

If you have a loved one who has left the faith, we encourage you not to give up hope but to join us for Return. Return: How to Draw Your Children Back to The Church combines powerful spiritual insights with practical tips. It’s like a bootcamp for spiritual warriors who are about to go out on a great search-and-rescue mission.

For more information on this new and exciting Ministry, contact Heather Warner at / 262-639-3616. Or attend our first Introductory Meetings in October. To register go to:

There is no charge to participate in this Ministry. Copies of Return: How to Draw Your Children Back to The Church will be available at the Introductory Sessions for a discounted price of $10/each. Free will donations in support of this and other adult outreach ministries are always appreciated.
