What is Return?

Return is a 7 week program aimed at equipping participants with tools, techniques and the confidence to draw their loved one back to the Catholic Church.

What do the sessions look like?

Each session has the following components:

  • A live speaker
  • Small group discussion
  • Prayer experiences
  • Homework that helps the participant put into practice the skills learned

See the below for a week-by-week outline with more details.

What does the fee cover?

The $50 fee for the live series covers all materials including the handouts, two books, the live speakers and hospitality.  The DVD parish program fee is $200 per parish and $25 per participant.  These fees cover all materials including the handouts, two books and a DVD of the live presentations. 


You can sign up for the February series by registering online at before February 1.

What if I want to do this for my parish?

If this is a program you would like to run at your parish we ask that you send at least two representatives to the series starting in February.  We will also host an orientation retreat for interested churches in May.  Once the retreat has been completed, parishes can purchase materials and a DVD of the live speakers so they can run the program in the Fall.   If your parish is interested in this,  contact Molly Schorr at 763-762-7374 or by email at for more information.
