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!

We’re currently accepting registrations for the next Coming Home Network retreat in Columbus, Ohio! For more information, or to sign up, visit chnetwork.org/retreats.

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a fascinating discussion with Cary Dabney, a former Jehovah’s Witness who came home to the Catholic Church.

We published online Part IV of Ken Hensley’s ongoing series, A Damning System of Works Righteousness.

On the latest Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley looked at what the Epistle of St. James says about perseverance in trials.

And in a new Insights video short, former Pentecostal missionary Fr. Scott Borgman discussed how the Mass is different than any kind of Protestant worship he ever experienced.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Elizabeth Bachmann looked at why so many Hillsdale College students are becoming Catholic.

There’s some troubling news on how this is going to be handled, but a Swiss cathedral is preparing to host its first Mass since the Reformation.

And Serge Gallardo, a former Freemason, shared his story with the National Catholic Register.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Msgr. Charles Pope looked at how to combat the deadly sin of pride.

And Matt D’Antuono tackled the persistent myth that the Catholic Church is opposed to science.

A convert who’s struggling because their family isn’t supportive of their decision to become Catholic, another member who just went through her Confirmation this month, and all our members preparing to observe their first Lent as Catholics – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
