For Pastors and Other Christian Leaders
We realize that seekers, especially those in ministerial or leadership positions in non-Catholic traditions, can encounter many difficulties when their search for truth leads to the Catholic Church. Their family and friends may not understand this search, their livelihood may be in jeopardy, and the path forward may be uncertain.
The Coming Home Network International was founded with this understanding in mind to provide those interested in the Catholic Church with support through resources and fellowship.
Network with Others Who Have Made This Journey
The CHNetwork began in 1993 out of the seemingly isolated experiences of Marcus and Marilyn Grodi and several other Protestant clergy and their spouses. Upon leaving their pastorates to enter the Catholic Church, these clergy and their families discovered with surprise that there were many others being drawn by the Holy Spirit to take the same journey. Since then, we have connected with hundreds of other pastors from a variety of backgrounds and at various stages of discernment. We believe we know where you are coming from and would like to help you on your way.
Financial and Vocational Considerations
Many non-Catholic clergy struggle with career and financial matters as part of their journey toward the Church. While individual circumstances vary widely, we have created, for members of the CHNetwork, an e-booklet specifically addressing these areas. We hope the practical tips and suggestions contained in this e-booklet encourage you along the path of discernment. We also have connections with Financial and Career Counselors who want to help former clergy review their resumes and discern how they can best use their gifts and continue supporting their families.

The Confraternity of Clergy Converts
The CCC is a private association formed to work for community and support among CHNetwork clergy convert members and to aid the Church in better reaching out to, welcoming, and empowering other pastors who become Catholic.
