When I got out in the world I slipped into a cultural Catholic mentality due to my arrogance and "I know what's best for me" attitude. Clearly, I did not know what was best for me and I neglected the spiritual nourishment of my roots, which lead me to became a fallen Catholic.
Once I had children, I realized the need to revisit my faith because it was such an important aspect of my own upbringing.
I started on the road of recovering Catholic at this point and was beginning to come home. But, it was not until I did my first CRHP weekend that the real healing of my hardened heart began.
Today I can call myself a devout Catholic and I am immensely grateful to the CRHP program and the many wonderful men and women in it who have taught me the meaning of true Christian community.
I recommend CRHP to anyone who wants a closer relationship with Jesus, with their family and with their community.
