January 4, 2019 No Comments

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!

The end of the year means lots of “Top Ten” lists! For our part, we published two of them: the Top 10 Journey Home Episodes and the Top Ten CHNetwork Online Features of 2018. Some great content – check it out!

This week’s Journey Home episode was an encore of our conversation with former Assemblies of God pastor Ernie Freeman, who shared how becoming Catholic didn’t negate his Christian beliefs; it completed them.

And in a new Insights video, Steve Ray shares how he viewed religious travel as a Baptist, and how he sees it now as a popular Catholic pilgrimage guide.

A cradle Catholic considering a return to the Church after 40 years away, a member who’s had to pause her journey due to complications with a pregnancy, and all our members who are interested in the Church but whose spouses are 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!
