There's something very nice about this story of two Nevada Catholic Church programs that are designed to help "fallen away" Catholics find their way back to the church.

Re-Membering Church is offered by St. Teresa of Avila in Carson City. Landings is a similar program at Immaculate Conception in Sparks. Words like "non-judgmental" and "understanding" describe the programs, which are referred by one lay program leader as a "listening ministry."

The happy ending is somewhere in the middle of the story, with a report of a Catholic woman who stepped away from the church after her divorce. After going through the Re-Membering program, she celebrated her "second First Communion".

Three cheers to this wonderful ministry.
