Our faith is a treasure which it takes a lifetime to truly appreciate.
Many good people have been baptised Catholic, but for a myriad of reasons find themselves following a path which has led them away from God's family.
Some people were baptised but received no formal education in the faith, others have participated in the sacraments during their primary school years, but for various reasons fell away from the practice of their faith in adolescence.
Others again have relied on the faith of their parents, but leaving home to make their way in the world, or upon passing away of parents, have found it difficult to carry their faith with them.
One thing is true in every age - God seeks out his beloved people. Through God's Church, the Lord searches for the lost, the despondent, the poor and offers them solace in his family.
