Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church
in Ramona, CA
Maybe you grew up Catholic.
Maybe you think of yourself as Catholic.
Maybe you haven’t been to church in a while.
Or, you are worried that you won’t be welcomed here.
And maybe it feels awkward and scary to take that first step.
Question. Doubts. Yearning, but not sure for what.
We get it. We’ve been there. Now we are here.
Maybe God is calling you, too. Just as you are!
