- never formed in the faith after childhood
- drifted away
- alienated because of how they perceive the Church or its teaching
- mistreated by church representatives
Do others in our parish know what catechetical programs exist? Can I provide time, money, or prayers for the education program in our parish? If there isn't a good program, recommend one to your pastor.
Do I know of anyone with questions about the faith or complaints about the parish/pastor/Church? Do I know anyone that I could invite to Mass or to a parish event?
Have I been unfriendly or unkind to anyone at my church? Do I know anyone to whom I owe an apology? Do I know anyone that needs sympathy and understanding - can I tell them I'm sorry for what happened to them and listen?
