The first stage of the Catholics Come Home campaign has been a hit. Now it’s time for Part 2, building on the momentum from the TV ads. You are invited to www.vancouvercomehome.com, where you will find a simple three-step process for sharing the CCH videos through Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube and email. No one is in a better position than you to extend the reach of these ads social media, email and personal contacts.
