The Sun ran a story in Sunday's paper about a new campaign by local Catholic dioceses to encourage lapsed Catholics to return to the Catholic Church.
The story noted that one out of every 10 Catholics in the U.S. is a lapsed Catholic. Numerous reasons, ranging from disagreeing with church policies and beliefs to anger at priest sex abuse scandals are given for why people fall away.
Illinois and Naperville have a large Catholic population, so doubtless many Sun readers are current or former Catholics.
If you are a Catholic who has fallen away from the church, what turned you off? Is there anything the church could do to change that would bring you back? If you are a Catholic who has remained in the church, what do you like that keeps you coming back?
