With the Catholics Come Home campaign fast approaching in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, The B.C. Catholic profiles the organization's founder Tom Peterson:

Tom Peterson says he's a blessed man. The president and founder of Catholics Come Home takes evangelization seriously, and wants nothing more than to save souls for Christ.

"I don't want any of our family lost because we didn't try," he said. "God puts these things in my path, and I've learned over the years to be obedient and bold enough to say yes because when we do that people come back."

Peterson's organization has partnered with the Archdiocese of Vancouver to help bring back perhaps a quarter million baptized Catholics to the Church. CCH was officially launched during the first annual Archbishop's Dinner Oct. 25.

"We appreciate the diligent efforts of Tom and his team to help us launch our CCH initiative in the archdiocese," said Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB. "Tom is a vibrant witness of faith, with apostolic zeal, and we really admire his desire to bring Catholics back to the Eucharist."

CCH is a multifaceted campaign that involves media and parish outreach. The media portion involves TV commercials, or "evangelmercials," airing in Vancouver and Victoria between Dec. 13 and Jan. 20.
