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 with Casey Chalk, a former Reformed seminarian who found his way back to the Catholic Church.

In a new Insights video short, Sr. Maria Theotokos shared how she came to understand Mary’s relationship with the Holy Spirit. 

We made available online the written conversion story from Mike Sollom, who came from a music ministry background and faced a series of personal tragedies on his way into the Catholic Church.

And please pray for all those attending this weekend’s Day of Reflection at the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, MD!

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Matt Archbold reflected on the conversion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s mother, and the family conflict it caused.

And Joseph Pearce referred to J.R.R. Tolkien himself as a “cradle convert.”

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Keith Albert Little tackled some of the misconceptions about praying to saints.

And Michelle Arnold explained why Catholics should have nothing to do with witchcraft.

*****

A former Wiccan trying to understand Christian spirituality, a former Protestant missionary thing to figure out how to use her gifts in the Church, and another member who’s decided to hold off on becoming Catholic for now – 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!
