Returning Catholics

Our Catholic faith is the largest Christian family in the world. Our Church is a vibrant and growing family, but we miss our brothers and sisters who have not been to Mass lately. God loves you so much that He will not stop searching for you, reaching out to you, seeking you. Saint Augustine, a convert to the faith at age 33, once said, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.”

Jesus wants to invite you back into His big, warm and loving Catholic family in the Church He founded 2,000 years ago. He’s calling you home, but the choice is yours…

We are family. We’ve missed you. Welcome home!

If you have completed the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Communion and Confirmation) but are unsure about rejoining our parish community, please consider attending one of our classes for returning Catholics. Contact Cheryl Duda, Director of Faith Formation, at 914-476-6676 to see which classes are available.

If you are a baptized Catholic but have not received your First Holy Communion or Confirmation we invite you to register for our RCIA classes shown in the link below.
