How to Come Home – Made Easy!

If you were Baptized Catholic and have been away from Christ’s Church for a year, a decade or a “lifetime,” coming home is very easy!

STEP ONE — CONTRITION
If you desire to Come Home and are aware that your missing Sunday Masses and Holy Days of Obligation were displeasing to Our Blessed Lord and/or your lifestyle, whether straight or gay, outside the confines of Christian Marriage between one man and one woman, were also displeasing, then we’ve got a deal for you! Maybe you’ve committed grave sins? Okay — Christ humbled Himself to death, even death on a Cross FOR YOU, INDIVIDUALLY, PERSONALLY and OBJECTIVELY!

Pretty great, right? RIGHT!

STEP TWO: CALL-IN the Priest and Go to Confession!​ Rectory Phone: 402-551-0269 Email: info@stbernardomaha.org
God’s Priests stand in the person of Christ when they administer the Sacraments. He will Welcome you Home NO MATTER WHAT, provided you are sorry for your sins and you are willing to CHANGE for the better, CHANGE for Christ so loved you…

STEP THREE: YOU’RE BACK! Go to Mass and RECEIVE THE BODY, BLOOD, SOUL AND DIVINITY OF CHRIST as YOUR ROCK, YOUR SUPER-VITAMIN FOR YOUR SOUL, YOUR THERMO-NUCLEAR WEAPON AGAINST SIN — as often as possible and don’t miss Sundays and Holy Days. It is also a good idea to go to confession at least once per month to get the GRACE from God to be good!

 ​If you were Baptized in another Christian denomination, Coming Home is still very easy!

STEP ONE — SIGN-UP FOR THE RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS and ENJOY THE RIDE! The Holy Spirit is not a liar and WILL NOT DISAPPOINT! Contact the rectory, 551-0269, for more information.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which we welcome new members into the Catholic Church through Baptism and/or Confirmation. The foray into this new life begins in late summer and continues through Easter & Pentecost. A critically important part of the RCIA program is the sponsor — a practical Catholic in Union with the Holy See — who is willing to share and defend the Catholic Faith with the “Catholic-to-be….” If you are interested in learning more about the Fullness of the Faith or about being a sponsor,
