Lydia Scrafano, right, lights a candle in St. Bede's Catholic Church in Williamsburg, VA. Scrafano left the Catholic Church more than a decade ago, following her mom to an evangelical church. But Lydia missed the message, even the pipe organ music, of the Church of her childhood. When she saw a banner in front of St. Bede's Catholic Church advertising a “Welcome Home” class, she joined and brought her mom back to church, too.
