Mass attendance in diocese up 7% following ‘Catholics Come Home’ ads
Catholic World News - October 14, 2010
Mass attendance in the Diocese of Green Bay increased 7.4% following the airing of commercials produced by Catholics Come Home, according to a diocesan survey. 53% of pastors reported an increase in the number of confessions, and 44% of parishioners surveyed saw the commercials between 11 and 30 times.
The Catholics Come Home apostolate uses the media to inspire, educate, and evangelize inactive Catholics and others, and invite them to live a deeper faith in Jesus Christ, in accord with the Church’s Magisterium.

Those are wondrous commercials! The "Movie" never ceases to bring a tear to my eye as it promises that "you can be freed from the addiction of sin" and that there is forgiveness by turning to Jesus. The one about the Catholic Church and all it did and does for humanity is wonderful too! I'm not sure who designed and wrote them,but I highly recommend them! They not only call people to turn back to God,but also show how the response comes best through the Church! Bishops, show them on network TV!
