CatholicsComeHome.org is responding to this call, for the need in our society is great.
• According to the CARA Catholic Poll (CCP), only 33% of U.S. Catholics attend weekly Mass. That means 42.7 million U.S. Catholics are not going to Mass.
• Up to 100,000 baptized Catholics in the U.S. drift away from the Church annually.
• The number of Americans identifying themselves as non-religious/secular increased 110% from 1990 to 2000. It is now 13.2% of the total population.
• Interestingly, the average American watches more than 4 hours of television each day and 98.2% of all U.S. households own at least one television. A 2006 study shows that students recall 2 minute commercials better than full news stories. So when we harness the power of television and the internet to promote the good news of Jesus and His Church…the results are amazing.

Dear Diocesan Partners,
Thank you for collaborating with us in this apostolic mission of spreading the good news of Jesus and His Church to the ends of the earth.
This section of our website is designed to help answer most of your questions regarding implementing this evangelism initiative in your diocese. Since we’ve already partnered with many other dioceses, we are able to help you plan for success more easily.
Please know that we are NOT a vendor. We are a Catholic apostolate that partners with select dioceses to air CatholicsComeHome.org TV ads consistently, to reach as many souls as possible.
In the next few years we plan to continue working in partnership with dioceses on strategic local initiatives, which have consistently helped hundreds of thousands of souls to return home to The Church.
We are confident that this information will help you to prepare for the implementation and launch of Catholics Come Home® in your diocese.
God bless you for serving our Lord and His Church. We are honored to partner with you in helping souls to come home to the one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church!
Your brother in Christ,
Founder and President
Important First Steps
After a diocese decides to become a CCH partner, and a local coordinator is appointed from your diocesan team, the very first step should be for all pastors to receive an announcement from your Bishop, letting them know the initiative is coming.
