This week’s Journey Home episode was a fascinating conversation with Margaret and David Bereit. David co-founded 40 Days for Life, and entered the Catholic Church this Easter.

We shared a new Signposts video with Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, who was raised Catholic, became an atheist, and came back to faith and eventually joined the Daughters of St. Paul.

Charlie Johnston wrote about his first experience in the confessional as a new convert to the Catholic faith.

We held another Live Stream discussion on our YouTube channel, with converts from the CHNetwork staff sharing what they thought of nuns and monks before becoming Catholic.

We began publishing a new online article series from Charles Hoffman, who shares his perspective on the Mass as a Jewish convert.
