CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Deacon Greg Kandra shared the story of a former atheist who was just ordained a Catholic priest.

Comedian Jeremy McClellan claimed that he’s funnier now that he’s Catholic.

Arkansas Catholic interviewed a couple about the long process that led them to the Catholic Church.

And recent Journey Home guest Zubair Simonson shared how his sense of “artistic snobbery” was part of what God used to draw him to the Catholic Church.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Mark Hausam wrote an article explaining his evolution on the question of sola Scriptura.

A couple whose families are opposed to their conversion, another member who recently returned to the Church and is trying to get their bearings, and all our members who have been recently received into the Church – 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!
