B.C. Catholic contributor Greg Van Dyk details the Catholics Come Home campaign in his city of Victoria:
The Diocese of Victoria is rolling out the welcome mat this Christmas as island churches prepare to receive Catholics who return to their faith, thanks to the Archdiocese of Vancouver's Catholics Come Home television ad campaign.

"My hope is that in each and every parish on Vancouver Island we have people who come back and explore, are welcomed, invited, reconciled, healed, nourished, and participate in the life and mission of the Church," said Father William Hann, the Episcopal Vicar for Evangelization in the Diocese of Victoria.

This December the Archdiocese of Vancouver launched a new campaign called Catholics Come Home, a project that uses creative television commercials to encourage lapsed Catholics to reconsider the Catholic faith and come back to church.
