Millions View Catholic Ad on Secular History Channel
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ads to air during "The Bible" miniseries through March
Atlanta (Roswell), GA (February 4, 2013) - The Catholics Come Home® "Epic" ad featuring the beauty, history, and accomplishments of the Catholic Church, will reach tens of millions of homes during the month of March, as they air in the hit new miniseries, The Bible, on the secular History Channel.
The commercials, which began airing during last night's premier episode, have already garnered overwhelming response from Catholics, fallen-away Catholics, and non-Catholics alike. "We've received hundreds of comments from the record-breaking 13 million viewers who saw the commercial during the #1 rated The Bible miniseries last night," said Tom Peterson, founder and president of Catholics Come Home, Inc. "Many responses were from fallen-away Catholics, who have been away from the Church for years or decades, and were unexpectedly invited home over their TV screens last night."
The commercials also received applause from faithful Catholics, who were energized to see the Good News of the Catholic Church being promoted to people of all different faith backgrounds tuning into the miniseries:
I saw it and thought it was awesome! ...A commercial on TV about Catholicism...We need more! -Mike
Fantastic! Made everyone in our home cry. Our Catholic faith is such an immense gift! -Rachel
I just saw it and told my non-Catholic friends to watch it too!! -Kristin
Our family is watching the History Chanel and your Catholics Come Home ad just aired. What a hit!!!!! Well done: the sequences were fantastic, and the commercial casts a net over a wide cross section of the population. This is one way to let all know we stand together through all situations. -Michelle
The miniseries will continue to air for two hours each Sunday night, until the grand finale on Easter Sunday. Fittingly, with the upcoming conclave to elect a new pope, Catholics Come Home® plans to keep strategically airing their "Epic" evangomercial™ nationally during the program, pending supportive funding from Catholics energized to evangelize many souls throughout the country with this massive Lenten media blitz.
Peterson served as a Catholic advisor to The Bible miniseries' producers, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The Bible has received endorsements from many Christians, including Cardinal Wuerl, who stated, "My hope is that this video presentation, The Bible, may bring alive its many stories in people’s minds and hearts so that they may be drawn to rediscover the Bible and rejoice in its saving message."
