marcusredMarcus received his BS degree from Case Institute of Technology in Polymer Engineering and worked for six years as an engineer. During this time, he was involved in a variety of Protestant youth and music ministries. He then received his Master of Divinity Degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and was ordained to the Protestant pastoral ministry. During his more than fifteen years of youth, young adult, and pastoral ministry, his main emphasis was church and lay spiritual renewal. Marcus, his wife Marilyn, and their two older sons, JonMarc and Peter, were received into the Catholic Church on December 20, 1992. Their third son, Richard, entered through baptism.

Marcus now serves as the Founder / President of The Coming Home Network International, a non-profit, Catholic, lay apostolate aimed at helping other Christians, both clergy and laity, explore the Catholic Church. He also hosts The Journey Home, a weekly live television program, and Deep In Scripture, a weekly live radio program, both on EWTN. He is the author of Thoughts for the Journey HomeWhat Must I Do to Be Saved? the novels How Firm a Foundation and Pillar and Bulwark, and the editor/author of Journeys Home and Journeys Home II. He has taught courses in catechetics, youth ministry, leadership, and theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Pontifical College Josephinum. He has written regular articles for Catholic Answers Magazine, as well as other Catholic publications.

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

My wife Marilyn and I were both “cradle” Protestants and I was an ordained Presbyterian minister before we were received into the Catholic Church in 1992. (For Marcus’ story click here; for Marilyn’s story click here). Our journey into the Catholic Church was exciting and fulfilling but also very lonely. We knew only a few other ministers who, like us, had become Catholic. We knew very few Catholics, and none of our Protestant friends could understand why we were doing such a “foolish” thing.

After we became Catholic, we began to meet other clergy converts as well as clergy and their families who were still on the journey home. Together we saw the need for converts and their families to provide a network of help to others still on the journey. This is how the Coming Home Network International (CHNetwork) began in 1993.

During the last eighteen years, the CHNetwork has grown considerably, primarily because the Holy Spirit continues to open the hearts and minds of our separated brethren to the truth of the Catholic faith.

Every week we hear from two to five new non-Catholic ministers somewhere along their journey home. Over these past eighteen years, we have assisted almost 2000 ministers from over 100 non-Catholic traditions. We have also assisted many lay people, and we do this in partnership with more than 16,000 lifelong Catholics and converts who support our work through their prayers, fellowship, evangelistic outreach, and financial support.

If you haven’t already, please consider joining the CHNetwork by visiting our membership pages click here. Together we can be an active part of the Catholic Church’s mission of evangelization and its efforts toward fulfilling Christ’s prayer for Christian unity.

Sincerely in Christ,

Marcus Grodi
