Holy Cross Landings Program

Welcoming Returning and Inactive Catholics

If you are a Catholic who has been away from the Church, know that Holy Cross has been thinking about you. We invite you to be an active part of us again.

LANDINGS is an eight-week program that offers “a safe place to land”, a place for listening and for being heard, a place for asking questions and for reconnecting with the faith as an adult.

During the eight-week LANDINGS program, a small group of active Catholics, some of them “returnees” themselves, meets with a small group of inactive or returning Catholics to share and explore their faith together.

If you are interested and want more information, please call or email us.

The next session begins Monday, March 9 and meets each Monday evening through May 4.  For more information or to register, please contact Harold Smith at hrsmith@comcast.net or 508-238-1899.  You can also register with Gail in the parish office at gshea@holycrosseaston.org or
(508) 238-2235

LANDINGS participants say:

“The warm, inviting atmosphere of LANDINGS facilitated my return to Catholicism after thirty-five years. This program is a wonderful mix of discussion about theology, philosophy, and real life.  The LANDINGS Team is fantastic!”

“I was a lapsed Catholic for 12 years.  I felt a spiritual calling but wasn’t sure returning to the Catholic Church was right. LANDINGS was vital in confirming my decision to return to the Catholic faith.”
