Marcus Grodi, President and Founder

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

My wife Marilyn and I were both "cradle" Protestants, and I was an ordained Presbyterian minister, before we were received into the Catholic Church in 1992. (For the story of Marcus' journey click here; for the story of Marilyn's journey click here). Our journey into the Catholic Church was exciting and fulfilling but also very lonely. We knew only a few other ministers who, like us, had become Catholic. We knew very few Catholics, and none of our Protestant friends could understand why we were doing such a "foolish" thing.

After we became Catholic, we began to meet other clergy converts as well as clergy and their families who were still on the journey home. Together we saw the need for converts and their families to provide a network of help to others still on the journey. This is how the Coming Home Network International (CHNetwork) began in 1993.

During the last eighteen years, the CHNetwork has grown considerably, primarily because the Holy Spirit continues to open the hearts and minds of our separated brethren to the truth of the Catholic faith.

Every week we hear from two to five new non-Catholic ministers somewhere along their journey home. Over these past eighteen years, we have assisted almost 2000 ministers from over 100 non-Catholic traditions. We have also assisted many lay people, and we do this in partnership with more than 16,000 lifelong Catholics and converts who support our work through their prayers, fellowship, evangelistic outreach, and financial support.

If you haven't already, please consider joining the CHNetwork by visiting our membership pages click here. Together we can be an active part of the Catholic Church's mission of evangelization and its efforts toward fulfilling Christ's prayer for Christian unity.

Sincerely in Christ,

Marcus Grodi
