Come Home Catholics

If you have been watching college football bowl games you probably saw Coach Lou Holtz urging Catholics to come home. I think it’s a great ad and hope it will make all Catholics think about their faith.

They say football is like a religion for some die hard fans, that’s why Catholics Come Home® plans to air a new national television commercial during college football bowl week, and ending with the BCS National Championship (Notre Dame vs. Alabama), Jan. 7, 2013.

This one-of-a-kind ad features legendary football Coach Lou Holtz delivering a rallying half-time pep-talk. In the 30-second commercial, Holtz coaches viewers to “the goal in life – heaven.” He is an ideal person to deliver the message, since Holtz is a devout Catholic and well-known veteran of goals, coaching Notre Dame to the National Title in 1988 during their last undefeated season.

Catholics Come Home® Founder and President Tom Peterson says, “Faith is not a spectator’s sport; it must be lived…it’s interactive!” This is why his non-profit is trying a new play with the goal of winning loyal fans for Jesus and the Church.
