A very warm welcome to all those wanting to explore becoming a more active member of the Catholic community. We're delighted to offer you this resource which we hope you’ll find interesting and helpful.

Come Home For Christmas is an initiative of the Catholic Church which aims to offer a seasonal welcome to Catholics who for different reasons no longer or rarely attend Mass. Whatever your story or journey, the door's open for you.

Whilst this resource has been created to offer a seasonal invitation and welcome, the journey back into the Catholic Community can of course happen at any time. The information on this site may therefore be of help to you at any point throughout the year.

If you're seeking help or information about missing persons, please see: missingpeople.org.uk
