Through the sacrament of reconciliation (confession), you will be welcomed back into full communion with the Church and will be able to participate in the gift of the Eucharist, receiving Christ’s Body and Blood, once more. Although this is seemingly just between you and God, you are also staking your claim once more as a member of God’s holy people, so don’t be surprised if you are also welcomed back into the community you join.
Maybe also consider how your return can help others who have their own doubts and even considering leaving the church. Your conscious decision may also serve as encouragement to others considering a return...
We want you to know you have been greatly missed Your contribution is very valuable. So are your God given gifts, and we are incomplete without them. (KIT project, Portsmouth Diocese)
