Catholics to be welcomed back this winter

Initiative invites fallen-away faithful to rediscover their Catholic faith

The B.C. Catholic
details some the Catholics Come Home initiatives, which officially begins in December:
The Archdiocese of Vancouver is inviting Catholics to come back to their faith this holiday season with a "Catholics Come Home" (CCH) initiative. Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, will officially announce the initiative during his fundraising dinner Oct. 25.

CCH is a multi-faceted campaign that combines media and parish outreach to bring fallen-away Catholics back to the Church. The media component involves commercials produced by CCH that will air between Dec. 13 and Jan. 20 on major TV stations in Vancouver. Parishes have been preparing outreach plans to welcome those inspired by the commercials.

"In the Archdiocese of Vancouver there may be as many as 250,000 Catholics who need us to reach out and welcome them," said Archbishop Miller. "Every one of us has family members, friends, or co-workers who once were active Catholics and now are no longer."
