www.CatholicsComeHomeBoston.org - Catholics Come Home® is an outreach initiative of the Archdiocese of Boston seeking to communicate the immense love of God, especially to those Catholics whose connection with the Church has become weak or has been broken.
This evangelization outreach will be conducted in conjunction with CatholicsComeHome.org, a national Catholic lay apostolate. There are two broad aspects of this effort of the New Evangelization:
* Television commercials that convey an inviting and positive message about living as a Catholic * Parish outreach and welcome by which Catholics reach out with a more personal invitation to friends, neighbors and family members and parishes provide opportunities to help people establish or re-establish a relationship with Jesus Christ in the body of believers that is the Catholic Church.
Linked with other projects of the Archdiocese of Boston such as ARISE Together in Christ and The Light Is On For You, Catholics Come Home® will assist active Church members to grow in their spiritual life. It will also help us to reach out and invite those whose connection to the Catholic faith community, especially at our worship at Sunday Mass, is weak or missing altogether.
Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they're bringing the readers of TheGoodCatholicLife.com blog along with them.
All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese's priests as an Easter retreat experience.
