042517 fr reidFather Timothy Reid, Pastor of St. Ann Church in Charlotte, was the featured guest on the EWTN program, “The Journey Home,” on Monday April 24.

The program features lengthy interviews with host Marcus Grodi and Catholic converts.

Father Reid was raised as a Methodist. He conversion story began in college when he decided that he wanted to know God better.

His faith journey took him through Christian fundamentalism where he developed some antipathy toward Catholics.

Eventually the study of the history of Christianity led to his conversion to Catholicism. Father Reid has been a priest since 2004.

The program can be viewed on the Journey Home section of EWTN.
