A former East Valley pastor has been officially dismissed from the priesthood, officials for the Diocese of Phoenix announced Feb. 16.
An estimated 92,000 inactive Catholics have come back to the Church in the last year thanks in large part to the groundbreaking Catholics Come Home television advertising campaign.
Television is often seen as having a negative influence on viewers, but it recently had a positive impact on the lives of local Catholics.
It’s not every day that television airwaves are used to share the Catholic faith. It’s even more rare for such a message to feature local people and sites.
Note to television viewers: Don’t touch that dial, especially during the commercials.
