Catholic and Lost Touch?

Lanterns and candles at a Catholic prayer vigil

A very warm welcome if you want to explore becoming a more active member of the Catholic community. We are delighted to offer you this leaflet, below, which we hope you’ll find interesting and helpful.

Additionally even if you have not been to church recently it is never too late to start again, no matter how long you have been away. Your local church would be delighted to welcome you and listen to your story.
