RETURN

Nearly every Catholic family has been affected by the large numbers of young adults leaving the faith.

 

Our RETURN outreach provides support, training, and resources to the parents of young adults so that you can guide your children back to a relationship with Jesus and his Church, rather than unintentionally pushing them further away.

You are not alone in this. Share the journey with fellow parents who truly understand, while continuing to learn practical strategies for success. Please join us for our activities below!

RETURN is co-sponsored by Ablaze Mission and Diocesan Marriage & Family Ministry
