Below is a link to an invitation to return to Mass that I made for our parish to use this Advent. We intend to make copies of this invitation available at the back of the church for parishioners to take and pass out to those they may know who are away from the practice of the faith. We thought it would perhaps be more effective if it is given by people who know them, even if it may be done anonymously. It also involves the whole parish in outreach.
If you wish, you may use the attached handout in your parish (with the required changes). If you are not the parish priest, please get his permission first. To use the pdf version, just save it to your own computer, print out a copy along with an update of your parish information (see below) for the back page. Cut and paste the information on the back page of the invitation. Don’t forget to have your priest(s)/deacon/parish pastoral council sign the inside of the card before making copies. The file is formatted for 2 invitations on each 8 ½ x 11” sheet. Make copies. Cut and fold—ready for handout! When explaining the procedure to parishioners, remember to ask parishioners to pray before and after giving them out.
Back page info (sorry, I could not adjust the spacing, but it is easy to fix as you fill in the information):
