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 a special conversation with Marcus and his son, Deacon Peter Grodi, who will be ordained to the priesthood later this month!

We published the written story of Deacon Steve Clifford, who was a Mormon deacon before he became a Catholic deacon.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim discussed whether the practice of the early Christians indicated that they were operating according to the doctrine of sola Scriptura.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at how Gnosticism and Christianity have different understandings of creation.

This week’s episode of Deep in Scripture featured a discussion with Marcus and JonMarc Grodi of why it’s important to remember that heaven, and not this world, is our eternal home.

And on the latest Insights video short, Fr. Sebastian White, O.P., looked at unity and diversity in the Catholic Church.

A member who’s been interested in Catholicism for years, but is afraid to move forward, another member trying to understand Church teaching on redemptive suffering, and a family preparing to be baptized together – 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!
