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!

January 18 marks the beginning of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, and the middle of CHNetwork’s 15 Days of Prayer For Christian Unity! To get the texts to pray for each day, visit chnetwork.org/unity.

This week’s Journey Home episode was a deep and thought-provoking conversation with the always engaging Dr. David Anders, who talked about Church history, salvation and justification, and how the Catholic Church saved his marriage.

In our latest written conversion story, Mike Knapp shares the story of his path from the Bereans (from the same family tree as the Jehovah’s Witnesses) to the Catholic Church.

And in a new Insights video short, Shaun Rieley shares how his pro-life views as an Evangelical Christian were deepened and enriched when he became Catholic.

An inquirer struggling with questions about Baptism, a woman whose health is preventing her from attending RCIA classes, and a member feeling drawn to the Catholic Church, but reluctant to leave their protestant ministry – 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!
