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 featured Heather King, who told the powerful story of God’s mercy that led her out of alcoholism and into the Catholic Church.

In a new Insights video short, Jeff Cavins talked about how Charismatic emphasis can lead to chaos and division outside the Catholic Church, but can be a beautiful and even freeing thing when explored in the context of the Church’s authority.

We revisited a CHNetwork Forum topic about what to do if you’re drawn to the Catholic Church, but put off by reading about all the scandals.

And in a newly published written conversion story, Gayle DiNicola compared the journey that led her to the Catholic Church to navigating the housing market.

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The Catholic Gentleman blog listed 10 reasons to consider becoming Catholic.

A Detroit-area researcher looked at why some “nones” are converting to Catholicism.

And Eric Robinson listed 14 things that piqued his interest in the Catholic Church.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Matt D’Antuono explained why “spiritual but not religious” is essentially a prideful position.

And Tom Nash demonstrated how the early Christians believed in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

A member sorting through the annulment process on the way into the Church, an inquirer who’s tempted to give up their pursuit of the Catholic faith because of all the scandals, and another member who loves what she’s discovering about Catholicism, but doesn’t want to leave a leadership position at her Protestant church – 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!
