The mission of the Church is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and reveal how much God loves us.
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Matthew 28: 19–20
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
Catholics Come Home® is an outreach initiative of the Archdiocese of Boston seeking to communicate the immense love of God, especially to those Catholics whose connection with the Church has become weak or has been broken.
This evangelization outreach will be conducted in conjunction with CatholicsComeHome.org, a national Catholic lay apostolate. There are two broad aspects of this effort of the New Evangelization
* Television commercials that convey an inviting and positive message about living as a Catholic
* Parish outreach and welcome by which Catholics reach out with a more personal invitation to friends, neighbors and family members and parishes provide opportunities to help people establish or re-establish a relationship with Jesus Christ in the body of believers that is the Catholic Church.
Linked with other projects of the Archdiocese of Boston such as ARISE Together in Christ and The Light Is On For You, Catholics Come Home® will assist active Church members to grow in their spiritual life. It will also help us to reach out and invite those whose connection to the Catholic faith community, especially at our worship at Sunday Mass, is weak or missing altogether.
