Is God giving you a nudge?
December 21, 2017
Have you or someone you care about been away from the church for a while? Perhaps you feel God’s nudge that it is time to come back. Our Lady of Angels has a wonderful opportunity for returning Catholics called Landings.
Landings is a 10 week program that helps you re-engage with your Catholic faith. You meet one night a week with a group of both practicing and non-practicing Catholics. Each evening different faith-related topics are discussed. Stories are told. You can ask questions and get answers in an open, accepting environment.
My friend Darlene Wigler and I started a Landings chapter at Our Lady of Angels because we both spent a good number of years away from the Catholic church. Coming back isn’t always easy. Landings helps make it a smoother, more rewarding journey because you are not doing it alone.
This is our second year offering Landings. Past participants ranged from people who never left the church, but didn’t feel “connected,” to others who were gone for more than 30 years.
Landings is offered by parishes across the U.S. (and other countries around the world). Developed by a Paulist priest more than 20 years ago, thousands and thousands of people like you have enjoyed the program.
The first session starts on Wednesday, January 17 at 7:00 pm. Space is limited and re-registration is required. If you would like enroll or would like more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org before January 10. We look forward to hearing from you.
