Catholics Come Home on S+L

April 8, 2015
In recent decades, millions of people have drifted away from Jesus and their Catholic faith.  The creative media team at Catholics Come Home feels a call from God to produce inspiring messages of the New Evangelization, which have already helped lead hundreds of thousands of inactive Catholics, converts, agnostics and atheists home to Jesus and His Holy Church.
Join us, as we travel across North America to bring you stories of heartbreak, redemption, and transformation as we meet some of the actual people that the Holy Spirit lead home. God wants us to spend eternity in heaven with Him and to bring as many people with us as possible. This is Catholics Come Home.
