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 Charles Hoffman, a Holocaust survivor drawn to the Catholic Church after seeing the parallels between the Passover and the Mass. The episode should be online soon, but in the meantime, here’s a link to his incredible story in written form.

We put up an article by popular author, speaker and pilgrimage guide Steve Ray, about how his view of the word “dogma” changed as he began to look into the Catholic Church.

And for All Souls Day, we shared a short video from Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, a former atheist, on why all Christians should think about their own death. Watch and share!

Meanwhile, around the web…

A convert looking for ways to serve the Lord in her parish, a member who’s coming away from RCIA with more questions than answers, and a married couple preparing for their first confession – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with this month at The Coming Home Network International.

“Be sure that you first preach by the way you live. If you do not, people will notice that you say one thing, but live otherwise, and your words will bring only cynical laughter and a derisive shake of the head.”
