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 episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our 2016 conversation with the always informative and entertaining Rod Bennett, author of The Apostasy that Wasn’t.

In a new Insights video short, Jeff Cavins reflected on how his understanding of the Holy Spirit developed from his time as a nondenominational pastor through his return to the Catholic Church.

On the latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley reflected on the lenses of understanding they brought to their reading of the Bible as Protestant pastors.

We made available online the written conversion story of Sharon Plascencia, who was a Fundamentalist Baptist church planter before coming home to the Catholic faith.

And we’re one week away from our June 8 Day of Reflection at the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, MD! Register today to reserve your spot. Cost is $40 per person, and includes meals.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Recently confirmed Catholic Andrew Petiprin, who comes from the Episcopal Church, reflected on the history of Anglican/Catholic relations.

And Desiree Hausam gave a brief introduction to the RCIA process for those interested in the Catholic faith.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Steve Ray and Gary Michuta responded to Protestant arguments against Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant.

And Philip Kosloski wrote a brief explanation of the Catechism’s role in the Church for non-Catholic readers.

A new convert exploring a call to religious life, a member trying to understand Church teaching on suffering, and another member waiting to start RCIA until the rest of her family is ready to join her – 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 used to hate and destroy one another and refused to associate with people of another race or country. Now, because of Christ, we live together with such people and pray for our enemies.”
