Help Air CCH Commercials During “The Bible” on History Channel!

Dear Friend of CatholicsComeHome.org,

Have you heard? The secular History Channel is airing a new series: The Bible, premiering on March 3. I was excited to meet with the producers of the epic 5-week mini-series a few times, Emmy winning husband and wife team Mark Burnett and RomaDowney. We share a passion for evangelization and a love of the Bible.

For two hours each Sunday night, millions of viewers around the country will watch the story of salvation history, stretching from Genesis to Revelation, in a stunning visual TV presentation, with the final episode of the series, featuring Christ’s death and Resurrection, airing on Easter Sunday.

Catholics Come Home® wants to air commercials during the show!
Imagine how many viewers of all different faith backgrounds–and many fallen-away Catholics–and even people on their faith journey for the first time will be watching the series on the popular History Channel! Though I haven’t seen the whole miniseries yet, I do know the impact that our “Epic” ad could have on the audience. How great it would be if we could join together to promote the Good News of the Catholic Church that Jesus founded by airing Catholics Come Home® commercials during this highly-acclaimed national programming.

Read what Cardinal Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington has to say about the series:
The Bible, the made-for-TV video, seeks to introduce a new generation to the Bible, the great book of the works of God. It does so with great passion, exquisite skill and cinemagraphic triumph. My hope is that this video presentation, The Bible, may bring alive its many stories in people’s minds and hearts so that they may be drawn to rediscover the Bible and rejoice in its saving message.

We need your help!
Our goal is to have more people be touched by the “Epic” ad, like our friend Deborah was, who recently emailed us explaining how she put off coming home to the Catholic Church for years, “until I saw the Catholics Come Home commerical in December 2011 [during the national campaign]. I said ‘Ok, Lord, I’ll go.’ I walked into my parish in Indiana on January 1, 2012 and found home! I enrolled that week in the RCIA program and was baptized that April. I am very active in church and love everyone and everything in our parish. It was a lot of years of seeking but I am finally home!”

We would like everyone tuning into The Bible to see Catholics Come Home® commercials air during the breaks, but we can’t do this without your help. Willyou please prayerfully consider making a donation to help us in this national TV effort, that will require our investment of nearly $200,000? Your gift will help reach millions of souls with the message that the story of salvation history continues today in Christ’s Catholic Church!

Thank you for your continued support of Catholics Come Home® and for joining me on this exciting journey of faith in Christ’s Catholic Church!

Your brother in Christ,

Tom Peterson and your CatholicsComeHome.org team

Tom Peterson on EWTN Live TODAY, Ash Wednesday!


First and foremost, we ask you to please join us in praying for the health of our Holy Father and for the upcoming election of our new Supreme Pontiff. We thank God for the amazing teacher and shepherd that Pope Benedict XVI has been, encouraging Catholics Come Home® and every one of us to live out the call to the New Evangelization with energy and boldness.

With the humility and faithfulness of Pope Benedict XVI to inspire us, we are pleased to report that the work of Catholics Come Home® is off to a great start in this new year. Here are some exciting updates we would like to share with you:

Catholics Come Home® combats anti-Catholic hostility on secular radio!
Our recent campaigns sparked lively discussions in the secular media, confirming that we know good things are happening when the Church faces such persecution. Christ promises us in Scripture that we are blessed when we are persecuted for the sake of righteousness (Matt 5:10). I hope you’ll take a few moments to listen to some of my recent radio interviews in Cincinnati and Vancouver Cincinnati Vancouver and pray that God may give us the courage and strength to combat falsehood and love hurting souls with the love of Christ, even in the face of persecution.

Catholics Come Home® will be on EWTN Live on Ash Wednesday!
I will be sitting down with Fr. Mitch Pacwa on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m. EST to discuss the recent campaigns and success of Catholics Come Home®, as well as the impact of media on our culture. We will also discuss the upcoming release of my new book, Catholics Come Home: God’s Extraordinary Plan for Your Life (Random House/Image Publishing, NYC), with the foreword by Dr. Scott Hahn! Reruns of the show will air Thursday, Feb. 14 at 9 a.m. EST and Sunday, Feb. 17 at 4 a.m. EST.

We are only days away from the release of Catholics Come Home: God’s Extraordinary Plan for Your Life!
If you haven’t already pre-ordered your copy, you still have time to order online! Next week, Feb. 19, the book will be released and you will start seeing copies in your local Catholic bookstore. Please spread the word by emailing your friends and relatives to encourage them to get a copy of the book, too! It offers inspiration for the faithful and is a great evangelization tool for those friends and relatives on their journey home to the Church.
