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!

On this week’s episode of The Journey Home, we shared an encore of our 2016 conversation with Fr. Pierre Ingram, about his journey to the Catholic Church and his vocation to the priesthood.

In a new written conversion story, Victoria Naoe told the powerful story of how she found mercy and forgiveness after abortion through the Catholic Church.

In our latest Insights video short, Tom Murphy reflected on the challenge of learning to share your faith as a new Catholic.

David Emery had a great breakdown of some of the key vocabulary terms that can cause confusion between Protestants and Catholics.

And registration is now open for our June 8 Day of Reflection, taking place at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg MD. It’ll be a great time of pilgrimage, prayer, and a chance to visit the relics of the first US-born saint, who was also a Catholic convert! Register here.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The Blessed is She blog looked at a variety of ways for Catholic parishes to support new female converts.

And Becky Carter argued that new Catholics can look to Noah for inspiration.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

And Matt D’Antuono shared how he overcame his personal objections to Church teaching on Mary and became Catholic.

Philip Kosloski addressed the question of whether a non-Catholic can go to confession to a Catholic priest.

A member on the journey who’s decided to stay in her Anglican Church for now, another member trying to better understand the Reformation, and all our members who were joyfully received into full communion with the Catholic Church this past weekend – 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!

“We must nourish a great love for God and our neighbors; a strong love, an ardent love, a love that burns away imperfections, a love that gently bears an act of impatience, or a bitter word, a love that lets an inadvertence or act of neglect pass without comment, a love that lends itself readily to an act of charity.”
St. Mary Elizabeth Hesselblad
