How do I explore returning to the Church?
Once you start thinking that you may wish to return to the Catholic Church then you enter the discernment stage – see the menu on the right.
Although these steps are offered as a suggestion they need not take long and can be very simple – God called you when you were baptised so you are closer than you may think.
Your first step could be to contact your nearest Catholic parish priest for an informal discussion - click here.
Help and support are also available in most parishes through RCIA which is a faith exploration and sharing group.
Also you could explore KIT 4 Catholics a programme in Portsmouth Diocese to reach out to, welcome and keep in touch with all local Catholics, whether or not they go to church.
