Evangelization - Parish Projects
One Bread Lay Apostolate is a Catholic lay evangelical organization dedicated to Christian unity in accordance with the will of Christ that all his followers be one (John 17:21).
The Paulist National Catholic Evangelization Association (PNCEA) builds up the body of Christ by equipping Catholics to evangelize.
Equipping Parishes, preparing the laity.
Helping Catholics Grow in faith. Nourishing Catholics who want to grow in their faith in Jesus Christ and share the treasures of their Catholicism with others are two more ministries.
Special Communities. In 1995, the late Fr. Thomas Comber, CSP, founded PNCEA Prison Ministries to help prison chaplains and volunteers provide inmates with solid Catholic teaching. From serving 190 prisons that year, Prison Ministries has grown to sending newsletters answering inmates' questions, Bibles, Share The Word, adult faith education books, and prayer cards to over 1,500 prisons.
Consultation. PNCEA staff members also serve as consultants to dioceses and parishes as they seek to carry out the evangelizing mission of Christ.
New Resources. PNCEA is in the research and development phase of a new resource called Invite! that is scheduled for publication in 2005. Parishes can use this resource to invite those with no church family to explore the treasures of the Catholic faith.
Whether you are on a journey into the Catholic Church or returning to the Catholic Church, you have come to a good place. Our goal is to provide you with a very wide array of helpful and thought-provoking resources that will help you understand more clearly the Catholic Church and its teachings.
At Catholics Come Home, we promise to always give you the honest truth, with nothing held back. We won't shy away from difficult subjects, nor will we refrain from pointing out the many beautiful, wonderful, and even miraculous aspects of the Catholic Church.
We also sincerely pray that you will not shy away from a careful examination of the biblical and historical facts presented here, and that you will sincerely and prayerfully consider that there may be much more to the case for Catholicism than you may have ever realized. You will find it interesting to learn that the Catholic faith is the largest Christian family in the United States (and the world), accounting for 25% of the U.S. population, and a growth rate of 11% in the past decade! So, you can see, the Catholic Church continues to be a vibrant and growing family…but we do truly miss our brothers and sisters in faith who have not been at Mass lately.
Our lives on earth should be a wholehearted search for God and His truth. For some, the search is easy and quick, for others it can be long and laborious. The purpose of Catholics Come Home is to make your search for the fullness of truth easier and more fruitful.
The old saying is so true: God loves you. He loves you so much that He sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and rise again from the dead to redeem and save you from sin and alienation. And, as Christ Himself promised, I will not leave you orphans (John 14:18). He established a Church, the Catholic Church, with all its human imperfections as the shelter from the storms of this life.
God loves you so much that He will not stop searching for you, reaching out to you, and seeking you, so He can bring you safely home to a big, warm, and loving Catholic family. But God is gentle... the choice is yours.
