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!

The first ever CHNetwork Deep in History pilgrimage is underway! Marcus Grodi, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson and Ken Hensley are in Italy, visiting Assisi, Siena, and other sites with fellow pilgrims, digging into the historical importance of our faith. Check out some of their updates!

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our conversation with Scott Weeman, who came back to the Catholic faith as part of his addiction recovery process. A great watch for National Recovery Month!

In a newly available written conversion story, Dr. Dale Pollard shared what led him to the Catholic Church.

On a new Insights video short, former Evangelical Protestant Jessica Ptomey discussed how she came to fall in love with liturgy.

And on the latest episode of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Seth Paine discussed gratitude, hope and the joy of the resurrection.

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Desiree Hausam (who will be on The Journey Home on Monday!) dug into the feeling new converts sometimes experience of not really fitting in as Catholics yet.

Ray Cavanaugh looked at how Revolutionary War hero Ethan Allen’s daughter ended up becoming a Catholic nun.

Gideon Lazar shared his journey from Orthodoxy to the Catholic Church.

And Philip Kosloski explored John Henry Newman’s advice to converts about common pitfalls to avoid.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Stephen Beale looked at 21 things we do when we make the Sign of the Cross.

Keith Little explained why 2 Timothy 3:16 is not a good argument for sola Scriptura.

And Steve Ray offered some handy resources for understanding the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory.

An Bible-only Christian who’s trying to understand the Catholic faith, a couple who’s looking to grow together as new Catholics, and an inquirer whose casual interest in the Church is becoming more serious – 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!
