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 March 2020 CHNewsletter is out! Read it here.

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a great discussion with Dr. Jonathan Fuqua about how studying philosophy helped lead him to the Catholic Church.

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

In a new Insights video short, recent Journey Home guest and former Baptist pastor Michael Davis shared how a Catholic sister helped him understand the Eucharist.

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

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The Diocese of Westminster is preparing to receive 400 people into the Church this Easter.

Michael Pakaluk shared why, if he had it to do over, he’d become Catholic again.

Recent Journey Home guest Casey Chalk explained why he is neither a Protestant nor a Sedevecantist.

William Hemsworth shared how he had a series of “false starts” on his way into the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Thing reminded us of G.K. Chesterton’s great poem, The Convert.

And the National Catholic Register is looking for Confession stories; would be great to see some testimonies from our CHNetwork membership!

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Dave Armstrong answered common Protestant objections to dogma of papal infallibility.

And Karlo Broussard explained why atheism isn’t the only possible rational worldview.

A member who’s drawn to the Catholic faith but doesn’t know what to do next, another member trying to understand the theology of the priesthood, and all our members in RCIA who are getting closer to the Easter sacraments – 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!

“We were in the hands of our persecutors, when my father, out of the affection he bore me, made new efforts to shake my resolution. I said to him: ‘Can that vessel, which you see, change its name?’ He said: ‘No.’ I replied: ‘Nor can I call myself any other than I am, that is to say, a Christian.'”
