Catholics Come Home, one of my favorite Catholic apostolates, has released a couple of new commercials as part of their continuing campaign to call Catholics back to the Church. If you haven’t yet watched their commercials, do yourself a favor and watch them. They’ll give your faith a positive shot in the arm.

Their newest commercial, “Home”, which will be broadcast this coming Advent, invites people to “experience the peace that only comes from God.” It’s a message that the apostolate hopes will resonate with viewers during these tough economic times.

Catholics Come Home is also debuting a new Spanish-language commercial for their sister-site, CatolicosRegresen.org. This testimonial-style commercial features Hollywood actor and producer Eduardo Verastegui. Verastegui, star of the film “Bella,” shares his story of returning to his Catholic roots.

“There is nothing greater than to wake up every day and to use your talents that God gave you to serve Him and to serve others,” said Verastegui during the shoot. A behind-the-scenes video, featuring Verastegui and Catholics Come Home Founder and President Tom Peterson, is also available.

Also, Catholics Come Home has launched a new outreach ministry - EncouragePriests.org. Check it out. It’s a top-notch site that allows you to create inspiring and encouraging messages, prayers, and spiritual bouquets for your favorite priests.
