Come Home

Many people have left the Catholic Church – and other churches, as well. What can we do to invite them to return? To come home? In this program Fr. Mike talks with Tom Peterson, President and Founder of Catholics Come Home. They talk about the reasons people leave a church. Tom gives statistics about the Catholic Church in America, quoting about 70 million baptized Catholics with about one-third of them attending Mass regularly. The reasons for leaving give hints for how to treat people in this group. Fr. Mike and Tom agree that what people want from the Church is to be welcomed, listened to and empowered.This reflects what Jesus was to his followers. Jesus showed mercy, compassion and love to all. That is what we must do as well.
