Dan’s Journey Home – From Judaism to the Catholic Church

November 4, 2011 by  
Filed under Dan Burke, Events

Dear Friends, I wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I will be appearing on EWTN's Journey Home program on November 7th to talk about my Catholic Churchconversion from Judaism to Evangelicalism and then finally home to the Catholic Church. I don't know if it would be blessing to any of you or your family and friends but I also discuss some involvement in the New Age movement. If you are not familiar with the show, Marcus' approach can be very powerful because it is a personal conversion story and not at all confrontational.

The Journey Home show airs on EWTN in these slots:

  • LIVE – Mondays at 8 PM ET
  • Encore – Tuesdays at 1 AM ET & 9 AM ET, Thursdays at 2 PM ET and Saturdays at 11 PM ET

I am not much for self-promotion so most of you probably don't know that I travel almost every month of the year talking about my conversion, the National Catholic Register, and also providing talks on the spiritual life. If you or anyone in your area would like to have me come speak, please contact me at and provide me with your ideas and a phone number where I can reach you. I will try to do a better job of keeping you up to date and connecting with you as I roam around the country.

My next events will be:

  • Vero Beach Florida – January 24, 2012 at Holy Cross Parish: During this event I will talk about my conversion and promote the National Catholic Register. This is a private event but I could possibly schedule something the day before or after.
  • Connecticut/NY/Northeast – Early December 2011: We are working on a few options in this area. If you have any needs for a speaker, please let me know.

    I look forward to hearing your conversion story.  With god’s grace and Marcus Grodi’s guidance, may you touch many hearts and bring them to the fullness of Christ’s mystery through the Catholic faith.

    Terrific, Dan! Thanks for the heads up.

    I would have been watching and said–hmm, that name sounds familiar! Ha! I look forward to watching you in person.

    May God bless you and keep you and make his face shine upon you.

    Thanks for the heads up! Will certainly be viewing this Monday to hear your remarkable story with Marcus. I have just ordered Roy Schoeman’s book
    Honey from The Rock which details 16 conversion stories from Judaism to Catholicism including Rosalind Moss, now Mother Miriam. Fascinating!
