Welcoming Catholics Home
The Catholics Come Home initiative for the Diocese of St. Petersburg is a media campaign intended to show the beauty of our faith and to invite those who have left the Catholic faith or just "wandered away" to come back home. The Advent/Christmas season provides an excellent opportunity to invite people to come home to the Catholic Church.
From December 16-January 22 television commercials will be aired on almost every network and cable station in the Tampa Bay media market. These are positive messages that will evoke pride in our Catholic faith and will allow viewers who have been away from the practice of the Catholic faith to say, "There's a place for us - we are invited back!"
The television ads alone are not sufficient. The invitation, witness and hospitality of all parishioners are needed. We can invite family members, friends, neighbors and fellow workers to rediscover their Catholic faith or embrace it for the first time. Invite them home this Christmas!
