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!

In our latest written story, Kendra Clark detailed her journey from convinced Mormon to contented Catholic.

Ken Hensley’s latest article discusses axe murderers, crocodiles, and the atheist struggle to find a satisfying basis for moral living.

We shared the short video testimony of Chris Hoffman, a cadet at the Air Force Academy, who saw Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons and became fascinated with Church art and architecture.

For #ThrowbackThursday, we shared a 2004 Journey Home episode with Fr. Terry Kraychuk, a high school dropout and drug dealer who is now a Ukranian Catholic heiromonk.

And before we forget – the Fall CHNetwork retreat is just over a month away!  We’ll be gathering in Orlando, FL from Sept 25-28, and would love any members, especially those in the Southeast US, to join us for prayer, fellowship, and support. Register here.

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Joseph Pearce offered his perspective on rising racial tensions in our country by sharing what led him to become a white supremacist, and what led him out of it.

And Rick Becker shared a new Catholic’s perspective on what it means to say “amen” at Mass.

ECUMENICAL/INTERFAITH NEWS

Br John Paul Kern (who was a recent guest on Signposts) revisited the five “solae” of the Protestant Reformation 500 years later.

And Amy Swenson looked at the sainthood cause of Fr. Paul Wattson, who founded the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

With the feast of the Assumption taking place earlier this week, Michael Ruszala looked at its basis in Scripture and tradition.

Catholic News Agency explained why Catholics venerate relics.

And K.V. Turley argued that time travel enthusiasts would do well to take a deeper look at the intersection of time and eternity that takes place at Mass.

AND SOME CATHOLIC WORLD WAR I HISTORY…

A blog devoted to his story reminded us that this week marked the 100th anniversary of the death of heroic military chaplain Fr. Willie Doyle, SJ.

A former pastor going through a major job transition, a convert praying that his children will become open to the Church, and a journeyer trying to understand the Eucharist  – these are just a few examples of the people we are working with this month at The Coming Home Network International.
