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 Bill Gent, a former pastor and church planter who found his way back to his Catholic roots.

We released another online video from our 2011 Deep in History conference with Dr. Scott Hahn, who explored the Holy Spirit’s role in guiding the Church through the centuries.

Ken Hensley continued his series on sharing the Gospel with atheists and agnostics, looking at the desire for happiness as evidence of the image of God.

On the latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus Grodi and Paul Thigpen unpacked 2 Corinthians 7:1 and the true meaning of the fear of God.

And for the feast of St. Augustine, Marcus Grodi and CHNetwork staff looked at the influence of this great saint and his impact on our work on the latest live stream on our YouTube channel.

A convert seeking to grow in her understanding of the Eucharist, a number of Catholic teachers and catechists who will be leading RCIA classes this fall, and several members who’ve shared their concerns about joining a scandal-ridden Church – 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!
