A member who’s just started telling her loved ones about her interest in the Catholic faith, another member who dropped out of RCIA this year but is still curious about the Church, and all the new Easter converts struggling to make friends in her parish – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for this month at The Coming Home Network International.
