Like the title says, could we ever catch up with the expanding universe?

The rate of expansion, in terms of velocity relative to us, is proportional to distance from us according to Hubble's Law.
So beyond a certain distance, the velocity is greater than the speed of light and we can not "catch up" to a region that is too distant.
(This is somewhat of an oversimplification, because the rate of expansion could accelerate or decelerate over time, but observations show accelerating expansion that will continue to accelerate).
