Returning Catholics: The light is on for YOU

Thank you for visiting this page for former Catholics and others interested in the Catholic faith.

On Thursday, March 15, every Catholic Church in the Diocese of St. Petersburg will turn on its lights and open its doors for the Sacrament of Reconciliation between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. On that evening, there will not be Penance Services; priests will simply be available for you to stop by and make an individual confession on your way home from work or school wherever you may be.

For more information about receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation, please read the brochure “A Short Guide to the Sacrament of Reconciliation”, which has been prepared for that evening, and is available in English and Spanish at

Welcome home.

"There's a way of life where simplicity brings joy and humility leads to happiness, where we learn that less is more and in giving we receive."

This is a powerful TV commercial from emphasizing God's call for us to live holy and meaningful lives.

A heartwarming outreach to lapsed Catholics and those interested in learning more about the Church. Catholics Come Home
