New option for cradle Catholics to support Catholic Converts

Be a "Friend of Catholic Converts". It's easy. Just link to Catholic Converts on your site or blog (use one of the badges if you wish) and send an email to

That's it and you'll be listed as a "Friend of Catholic Converts".

Yes, I do want to build links and traffic to this blog. But the purpose for doing so is the hope that those thinking about coming into the Catholic Faith or those recently received into the faith will be able to use this blog as a resource in finding other blogs that deal with the unique stories of other converts.

BTW, anybody can be a contributor to this site also. Maybe you have some good RCIA type information, or a prayer that someone thinking about conversion might enjoy, etc. You just have to be faithful to the Church and its teachings. Send an email to the address above.

More about me can be found at Calling Rome Home.

New badge added

There are now three sizes of the Catholic Converts badge. I added a small one for those who don't like to clutter up thier pages with large graphics.

Of course, I personally find the new small graphic very boring compared to the two larger sizes.

Catholic Converts saved from . . .

. . . the delete button. That's right, yesterday I had made up my mind to abandon this little project. Then, to my surprise, a new member yesterday. And then another one today. So, I guess I'll keep it going.

Planned additions to the blog:

  1. A third, and smaller, button option.
  2. Contributors: If you are interested email me. I'm not talking about having to post everyday. Just the capability to if you run across a particularily good conversionstory, what to share your own story, profile a famous convert, etc.
  3. Once I find a good image of St. Augustine of Hippo I'll be adding that too. I choose Augustine as my confirmation name while reading The Confessions. I think he would make a great patron saint for this blog.
  4. Book list of books helpful to converts and those thinking of converting. If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Welcome Matt

I'm in the process of converting to the faith and my blog is chronicling the process. I'd love to be added to your blog roll once you've gotten a chance to read my stuff and decide if its right to put on your list.

Catholic Converts badges

Please feel free to add one of these badges to your site. If you would like to be added to the Catholic Converts blogroll on this site please send an email to or leave a comment on on the site. From time to time I run across a site with the badge that isn't on the blogroll. That is prefectly fine with me, I appreciate the link. However, I do like to return the favor with a link back but I don't put any blog in the CC blogroll unless the owner asks.

Three size are available.
