Atlanta, Ga., Nov 3, 2011 / 03:31 am (CNA).- Catholics Come Home has announced a major prime time evangelization initiative set to air on American TV networks beginning in mid-Advent and ending after Christmas.
The initiative’s advertising campaign aims to reach 250 million television viewers in over 10,000 U.S. cities and in every U.S. diocese.
“These inspiring messages are sponsored by 30,000 Catholic families who want to invite neighbors, relatives, and co-workers to the largest family reunion in modern history,” said Catholics Come Home founder Tom Peterson.
The ad used in the campaign notes the beauty and history of the Catholic Church. It mentions Catholics’ traditions of prayer, help for the poor, and work in education.
“Guided by the Holy Spirit, we compiled the Bible,” it says, stating that the Church was “started by Jesus.”
“If you’ve been away, come home to your parish, and visit CatholicsComeHome.org today,” the ad says.
Catholics Come Home says the ad is scheduled to air over 400 times from Dec. 16 through Jan. 8.
