Got a question about the Catholic Church, or need assistance on your journey? Consider becoming a member, or feel free to contact us for more information.  The Coming Home Network exists to help converts, reverts, those on the journey, and those who are just curious – we’d love to hear from you!

This week’s Journey Home episode was with Laura Richards, whose path back to faith came when she reconnected with the son she gave up for adoption. We’ll post the episode as soon as it becomes available, but in the meantime, here’s her written story.

In the newest written story for our site, Lily Loh shared how her journey of faith has taken her not only around the world, but all the way from Buddhism to the Catholic Church.

In his latest article on sola Scriptura, Ken Hensley explains why so many Protestant Christians are drawn to this doctrine that Martin Luther popularized.

And in a fun clip from our 2009 Deep in History conference, Dr. Paul Thigpen shared a tongue-in-cheek list of the Top 10 Reasons to Study Church History.

Meanwhile, around the web…

AND A CATHOLIC SISTER FROM THE NCAA TOURNAMENT GOES VIRAL…

A member wanting to continue RCIA, but who is having health problems, an inquirer who has lots of questions about a previous marriage as he explores the Church, and a man who’s interested in the Catholic faith but who’s wife is definitely not  – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with this month at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
