Whether you are on a journey into the Catholic Church or returning to the Catholic Church, you have come to a good place. Our goal is to provide you with the help you need to complete your journey of understanding more clearly the Catholic Church and its teachings. We are eager to walk with you in the practice of the faith that leads us all to Jesus Christ our Lord.

Our lives on earth should be a wholehearted search for God and His truth. For some, the search is easy and quick, for others it can be long and laborious. The purpose of Catholics Come Home is to make your search for the fullness of truth easier and more fruitful.

The old saying is so true: God loves you. He loves you so much that He sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and rise again from the dead to redeem and save you from sin and alienation. And, as Christ Himself promised, I will not leave you orphans (John 14:18). He established a Church, the Catholic Church, with all its human imperfections as the shelter from the storms of this life.

God loves you so much that He will not stop searching for you, reaching out to you, and seeking you, so He can bring you safely home to a big, warm, and loving Catholic family. But God is gentle… the choice is yours. The people of the Rockford Diocese are here for you. We hope you find what you are looking for on this web site and its resources. We look forward to seeing you soon in our parishes. Welcome home, we’ve been waiting for you.
