Catholics Come Home To Air Prime Time Ads

This is really good news. I am a big fan of Catholics Come Home. They do great work and the numbers speak for themselves:
The bi-lingual Epic ad is scheduled to air on CBS, NBC, Univision, TBS, USA, TNT, CNN, Fox News, and other networks during shows like 60 Minutes, NCIS, NBC Nightly News, the Today Show, Jay Leno, O’Reilly, major sports, and highly rated sitcoms. They’ll be airing over 400 times during the three week period before Christmas (starting December 16) through the Feast of the Epiphany, reaching more than 250 million television viewers in over 10,000 U.S. cities and every diocese.
I am really hoping we see a national surge of interest, just as it happened on the local level. The one difference is that the local dioceses that hosted the commercials were ready with programs for returning Catholics. That is why we had numbers so high.
Based on where the ads have previously aired, in partner dioceses from Chicago to Seattle, Catholics Come Home believes that as many as one million souls could come home to local parishes as a result. Mass attendance, where the ads have aired, has increased an average of 10%, and helped more than 300,000 return to the Church since 2008.
Here is the "Epic" Ad, that is so well done.
